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!

Juvenile Great Blue Heron Filmed With Drone

Ryan Collins

I love catching fish, but I also love being out in nature and simply observing wildlife.

Here on Cape Cod we are blessed with diverse habitats and an array of different animal species, from great white sharks to piping plovers.

As I create season #3 of My Fishing Cape Cod TV, I am making sure to include as many nature and wildlife scenes as possible. One of my missions with the TV show is to foster an appreciation and respect of nature and wildlife.

Touring Wild Care & the Trash Your Tackle Program

Lauren Collins

I had the wonderful opportunity this year to tour Wild Care, a wildlife rehabilitation center less than a few miles from the Goose Hummock in Orleans.

It was great to meet the staff, see the facility, and learn about the countless hours and dedication they put into helping the wildlife on Cape Cod.

In this post I want to show you what Wild Care's mission is, what they're doing to save wildlife across the Cape, and how you can help if you see an injured or sick animal.

I share this post with you because not only do I want to show you what is happening around Cape Cod that you might not even know about, but also because as fishermen and fisherwomen, you are usually the ones out there seeing animals firsthand, and if you ever see one in distress and want to help, there are options!

Creamy New England Clam Chowder Dip

Lauren Collins

I've been thinking about this recipe for months, and when I finally put it to the test, I literally jumped for joy and had to call my Mom immediately.  It is so good.

Creamy and thick New England clam chowder get's turned into a dip, perfect for those lazy Sunday football days and so easy to whip up.

In just a few short steps, you can make a super thick and creamy New England clam chowder that's then broiled to crispy perfection with panko on top, then served with saltines or pita crackers.
