Tautog Fishing Is Slowly Starting Up

To say that this past weekend's tog bite was "rather slow" would of been an understatement! The water temps need a little work but at least they are headed in the right direction.

I suspect that with the cooler weather the past few nights and with the waning moon later in the week, we will see some much better tautog fishing. As for this past weekend we caught just a handful of keep tog.

Captain Jason Colby September 18-22 Fishing Report


Today (Tuesday, September 22nd) I had Rob P. and his friend Fernando onboard, casting eels under the cover of darkness.

It was definitely a dark, stormy night, and we started off in the area where I've been seeing schools of bunker, also referred to as pogies by some of you MFCC folk.

The ebb was just getting going and I figured that "the biggest fish in the harbor" would be hanging around, keeping their eyes on the bait.

The Buzzard’s Bay Bass Bite is Heating Up…

Jason with one of 8 bass caught during a recent trip.

This morning, between Ron and I, we had at least 8 fish on bait and plugs in just a couple of hours. The bass are in pretty thick!

If you want to cast eels or do some bass chunking, then the next 4 weeks would be "the time" to go. Also with the start of October, the tog fishing will get better and better each day.

The big bass bite has been pretty slow since we caught a 31 pounder back on August 30th. Over the past week we have only caught a few small bass to show for our efforts.

The following recaps what I've been encountering the past couple trips aboard my boat the Little Sister.

Buzzard’s Bay Weekend Fishing Report

Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, with no monster fluke and not much more than 1/2 limits. The sea bass are now closed and the striper fishing was awful Saturday morning, with weeds driving us crazy.

However, later in the day on Saturday I did find some new fluke spots that look promising for future ventures. We did find some good fish in these spots, and Ron Powers dropped one that was likely in "the moby class."

Westport, MA Fishing Report

Little Sister Boat copy

This is a guest report from Captain Jason Colby of Little Sister Charters. Jason has caught more than 24 stripers over 50lbs. We are fortunate to have him contributing to MFCC!

We headed out on the morning of Sunday, August 23rd in search of deepwater fluke, and enjoyed excellent conditions on the ride "out there."

During the first couple of drifts we had little in the way of action, but then as if for no reason at all, the fish decided to eat.

Awesome Topwater Action | June 15th Report

june 15 cape cod striped bass fishing report

This morning I recorded a podcast with Cullen Lundholm of Cape Star Charters and learned about an amazing topwater bite that he's been experiencing the past few days off Cape Cod. 

There are no guarantees in fishing, but right now Cullen and his crews have been consistently catching 25+ pound striped bass, mostly on topwater plugs.

There have even been rumors of a couple 50 pound bass caught...

This weekend I spoke with Captain Cullen Lundholm of Cape Star Charters, who's been out on the water just about every day as of late. Since I have been mostly fishing from shore I was curious to see how Cullen has been doing out in his boat.

Fortunately for us Cullen is happy to contribute to MFCC and I was pumped up to hear that he's been doing well. Striped bass have been his main target species, but his crews have also been catching loads of scup and sea bass.

Stripers and Finally Some Tautog


Over the past several days I've run a total of 8 charters, mostly for striped bass. I have a couple more striper trips coming up this week before sea bass starts on May 23rd.

My most recent trips have been similar to our MFCC group trip from a couple weeks back.​ It's been mostly plugging with some live mackerel, and finally some tautog mixed in.
