Behind The Scenes Of Episode #4 | Cape Cod Black Sea Bass Fishing With Team Goose

Ryan Collins

The black sea bass has become one of the most prolific fish species on Cape Cod, providing anglers with great sport and delicious table fare.

Black sea bass are relatively simple and easy to catch. They can be caught in Buzzard's Bay, Nantucket Sound, Vineyard Sound and Cape Cod Bay.

In this "behind the scenes" blog post, I'll share with you the locations and strategies Sam Brown and I used during the filming of episode #5 to catch big, beautiful, hard fighting and delicious black sea bass.


Heading Out To The Black Sea Bass Grounds

The morning of May 30th 2018 was perfectly clear with no wind at all. I remember pulling into the marina and looking up into the sky at a bright full moon, which hung just above the horizon.

A few minutes after I arrived our film crew consisting of Evan from Hop Top Films, MFCC TV producer Shane Uriot, and Tyler from the Goose Hummock pulled into the parking lot.

I had chosen a boat ramp and marina that would give us quick and easy access to the most productive black sea bass spots. Fortunately this ramp also has plenty of parking, which made it the ideal place for us to launch from. 

You can view the boat ramp in the map below.
