Watch MFCC TV Online – Starting Saturday December 7th

Ryan Collins

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you had a great holiday. In this post I'd like to update you about an exciting new addition to the My Fishing Cape Cod website.

Beginning at 9:30am on Saturday December 7th, the episode Surf Fishing Cape Cod's Fall Run will be available for streaming here on the site.

This episode originally aired on NBC Sports Boston during January of 2018, and it is one of my favorite episodes!

During this trip Dave Steeves of the Goose Hummock and I encountered epic action with pencil poppers from shore with bluefish to 10+ pounds and striped bass to 25+ pounds.

Coming Soon to My Fishing Cape Cod

Ryan Collins

Creating new Cape Cod fishing content has been a daily ritual since I launched My Fishing Cape Cod in 2011.

Maintaining the website, social media channels, podcasts, forums, videos and now our TV show on NBC SportsBOSTON is a lot of work! However it is a labor of love and I enjoy it thoroughly. 

In this post I want to check-in and let you know what I've been working on most recently. I have a lot in store for MFCC members and fans alike, to help us get through the cold winter months which lay ahead.

Top 5 Recent Catches by My Fishing Cape Codders

Ryan Collins

November fishing for fans and members of My Fishing Cape Cod has produced plenty of schoolie stripers, big brown trout, largemouth bass and plenty other species.

In this post I would like to quickly highlight some of the most impressive recent catches. 

If your photo or catch did not make this list, then have no worries! There were honestly too many good ones to choose from, and I just don't have the time to add them all to this post.

You can access the list of the top 5 catches (in no particular order) below. 👇

November 7th Striper Blitz Caught On Drone

Ryan Collins

November is definitely not a "prime" month for striper fishing on Cape Cod. Most of the bass (especially the big ones) have migrated out of Cape waters by this time of year.

The weather is also a lot more difficult during November, and with less fish around, successfully finding and catching is much more of a challenge.

So far this November I had been skunked, but that all changed yesterday morning at sunrise. As soon as I stepped foot onto the beach I could see hundreds of birds and bass swirling on the surface!

The Best of Cape Cod: Top Breakfast Spots

Lauren Collins

Whether you live on Cape Cod or are here on vacation, going out to breakfast is a favorite for many.  

Cape Cod has a lot to offer when it comes to breakfast options, so I reached out to the members of MFCC for their favorite spots, and boy do we have a list for you!

Thank you to the members who helped create this list of the best breakfast spots on Cape Cod!  If you have another one to add, please let us know in the comment section.

I have organized this list so that it starts in Plymouth and works it's way down to Provincetown, so no matter where you are on the Cape, you'll know where to go for the best breakfast.

MFCC Presents: Underwater Tog

Ryan Collins

This past Saturday November 2 my friend Jay Mazzola and I headed out again in search of tautog.

We were coming off this great tog trip from the weekend before, and we were both eager to get back into the blackfish!

However, due to the gale force winds we experienced last week, the water conditions on Saturday were still quite murky and the water clarity was poor.

Outer Cape Day Trip– Arts Dune Tours, Hiking and Lobster Rolls

Lauren Collins

The fall is a great time to hit the road and day trip to the outer Cape.  Just a few hours from Boston lies some of the most unique landscape, towns and delicious food!

In today's post, I'll share with you my most favorite road trip that I look forward to every year.

This may not have much to do with fishing, but I'm fairly positive if you're reading this and you have a significant other, they would probably very much appreciate a day trip down Cape minus the fishing! (or at least I do!)

For this trip we headed to Marconi Beach, High Head in Truro, went on a tour with Art's Dune Tours, ate a whole lot of lobster and strolled through a very empty Provincetown!

Tautog Are Still Biting Well

Ryan Collins

Last Thursday through Saturday we were gifted with perfectly calm conditions and warm sunny skies.

The weather was so good on Friday that I was able to comfortably fish in short sleeves. I may of even gotten a little sunburnt on my nose!

I really cherish good weather days during late October because we all know winter is coming, and fish-able days are now fewer and farther between.

Coconut Sweet Chili Mussels

Lauren Collins

Fall is the season for rich sauces made for crusty bread to sop it all up, which is right up my alley.

This creamy, tangy and very flavorful sauce is made with a few simple ingredients, some of which you might already have, and even better, it takes about 20 minutes.

Earlier this summer I had attempted a few sauces for mussel recipes which turned into a total failure - either they tasted great but looked awful in photos or just simply did not work.  This time around, after taking a mental break from mussels altogether, we have a winner!
