Could the weather have been any better this winter?
I feel as if the winter never really happened here on Cape Cod, or really anywhere in New England for that matter. As I write this I am enjoying a nice "spring-like" breeze that is blowing through many of the open windows in the house. It's 50 plus degrees and sunny at the moment with tomorrow's temperatures expected to be in the mid 60's. Unreal!
The warm winter weather has kept water temperatures well above normal. From what I have heard Cape Cod Bay is about 2-3 degrees warmer than usual for this time of the year. How this will affect the 2012 saltwater fishing season is yet to be determined.
Some folks believe that this year's fishing will be a little off due to the extraordinarily warm winter we have been having. However all current signs seem to be pointing to the contrary.
I'm really looking forward to this season because it will be my first year of providing in-depth and detailed Cape Cod fishing reports for subscribers to the blog. To access premium fishing reports during the 2012 season, considering becoming a member. Right now you can sign up for just $1.

I'm also looking forward to this season because I think the incredibly high amount of whale and dolphin activity this past winter in Cape Cod Bay bodes extremely well for the upcoming striped bass season.
I’m fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I’ve been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!
