2019 in Review: A Cape Cod Bay Charter Captain’s Perspective

As I begin collecting my thoughts for this post, I am sitting at the helm of my charter boat the WINGMAN for the last time this season.

My fingers are shriveled, my jeans and boots are wet, and there are scents of wax and detergent in the air from the past several hours of cleaning.

I’ve just completed prepping my boat for winter. WINGMAN is currently tucked in beside my garage and the guys are on their way to begin shrink wrapping.

As I wait, I begin thumbing through my logbook, and I sense a smile creep across my face as I recall wonderful times and great folks I had aboard during the 2019 season while fishing Cape Cod Bay.

The First Fish Of Your Life

Recently in the My Fishing Cape Cod forum, one of our members started this awesome thread about the first fish of your life.

Very quickly the thread began to grow with stories from "catching giant bluefin tuna with dad" to fishing for sunfish at the pond with grandma and grandpa. In this post I would like to highlight some of my favorites!
