Upcoming Tuna Fishing & Shark Viewing Trips

Ryan Collins

The 2019 season is flying by and I honestly cannot believe that late summer and fall is right around the corner!

Late August through September is quite possibly my favorite time of the year. The weather is good, the crowds have thinned out, and the fishing is usually productive.

In this post I want to let you know about some new upcoming group fishing trips, as well as great white shark viewing trips

As always, it would be awesome to have you and your friends onboard for one of these memorable adventures. 👇

Jonah Crab & Corn Cakes

Lauren Collins

Light, airy Jonah crab cakes, made with freshly picked summer sweet corn and perfect for an app or a meal.

I used my handy air fryer for this recipe, which is great when you don't want to turn on the oven on a hot day, but I have directions for the oven as well!

You can make a quick lime crema to go with these crab cakes, or they taste great with a southwestern style salad, with ingredients like fresh pico de gallo, avocado and cilantro.  You can also freeze them to enjoy in the colder months.

Nighttime Peanut Bunker Bass Blitz

Ryan Collins

This past Tuesday night I donned my bathing suit and hit the beach at 11pm in search of stripers.

The moon was nearly full, and it was shining brightly through the foggy mist and clouds. The wind was dead calm.

I quietly walked down the beach, making sure not to disturb anyone who may be sleeping in the nearby houses. After a 20 minute walk I arrived at the spot, hopeful that some fish would be home.

Huge Great White Shark Off Cape Cod, MA

Ryan Collins

Yesterday afternoon while on a trip with Cape Star Charters we encountered a huge great white shark that was cruising over a shallow sandbar off Cape Cod, MA.

Great white sharks are here in abundance and yesterday we spotted a half dozen great whites in under 2 hours time.

Successfully filming the largest shark was a challenge, but we managed to capture some pretty amazing drone and underwater footage which you can preview below! 👇

Cajun Grilled Swordfish with Mango Salsa

Lauren Collins

In the middle of the summer, especially in August, no one really wants to be stuck in the kitchen cooking over a hot stove!  It's grilling season!

This Cajun Grilled Swordfish with Mango Salsa is the perfect solution!


Mango salsa is a great staple to have in your fridge during the summer.  Not only is it great over fish or chicken, but also great for tacos, tossed in salads and of course just keeping it simple with some tortilla chips.  It requires little time, and a big batch can last days in your fridge.

How To Fish With Wire Line On Cape Cod

Captain Steve Leary
Wingman Sportfishing

There is no doubt each time I engage folks in conversation related to fishing with wire line, I brace myself for the standard onslaught of old or newer more “colorful” expletives related to using that “x*&%#>@” crap!

Sure, I’ll admit wire is not very forgiving if not handled properly. Wire can create some incredible birds nests, and then there is wire's ever present desire to kink, and wire's memory coils.

However, wire does bring with it a set of advantages and flexibility that other lines do not! In this post I would like to share with you the most important lessons I have learned in my time spent wire line fishing on Cape Cod.
