This article was originally published in May of 2020. I figured now would be a good time to re-publish, because squid will soon be arriving off the Cape!
Over the past week on Cape Cod we've enjoyed some sunny warm days, but we've also had some snow flurries!
Nevertheless the action with stripers, tautog, scup and squid has really picked up. I've even heard of there being a few bluefish caught.
In this fishing report, I'd like to bring you with me on my latest Cape Cod squid fishing adventure. I'm no squid expert, but in this post I will give you some helpful tips and advice for catching squid on your own.
Welcome to another edition of the My Fishing Cape Cod podcast here on myfishingcapecod.com. I'm your host Kevin Collins back with you for another exciting edition of the podcast here in 2021.
Today's episode was recorded on April 22. For those of you who've been following along with the podcast this season, we've been mixing it up between our interview-type format and our fishing report-type format.
For this podcast we are going to publish an original fishing report style show with our roundtable of guests including MFCC founder Ryan Collins, Goose Hummock owner Phil Howarth, and MFCC member Bruno Demir of Cape & Islands Mitsubishi.
As spring gets officially underway, water temps are rising and fish are starting to feel more like themselves again!
Though newly arrived striper should be upon us any day now, many members are biding their time taking to the sweet water to target freshly stocked trout, as well as increasingly active large and smallmouth bass.
Luckily, it appears the we have reached the time of year where all types of fishing will only steadily improve for the foreseeable future.
Brett D’Alelio grew up in Marshfield and enjoys fishing for stripers, blues and other species along the South Shore of Massachusetts. He is set to graduate from Santa Clara University this spring with a degree in film and media, and is looking to break into the professional world of fishing in any capacity. We are pumped to have him aboard as a My Fishing Cape Cod member!
