2019 Cape Cod “Fishing Vacation” Rental Packages

Ryan Collins

Since launching My Fishing Cape Cod in 2011, we have helped hundreds of anglers make the most of their fishing time here on the Cape.

Today I'd like to share with you a new fishing vacation rental package, created for anglers and families looking for a 4 bedroom rental, in close proximity to some of the best fishing on Cape Cod.

The rental is owned by a friend of mine who is also a member of My Fishing Cape Cod. He's created a fishing oasis by renting his newly renovated home, which is located just minutes away from world class saltwater striper fishing!

My 2 Favorite Boat Ramps In Falmouth

Ryan Collins

The town of Falmouth has great fishing for stripers, bluefish, fluke and false albacore. I got my first taste of boating off Falmouth in elementary school, when my dad brought my family and I to Cuttyhunk.

The island of Cuttyhunk (and the entire Elizabeth Island archipelago) sits just to the west of Falmouth. Boating and fishing along the Elizabeths is a big draw and is typically my main reason for launching my boat in Falmouth.

The island of Martha's Vineyard is also just a short boat ride across Vineyard Sound from the southern shoreline of Falmouth. And off West Falmouth is some very fishy water for tautog, black seabass, and scup.

What You Need to Know About Tuning a Metal Lip Swimmer

Connor PD

Washed Ashore Fishing

One of the greatest features of the wooden metal lip swimmer is that the fisherman has the ability to adjust the depth at which the plug swims, on the go.

I'm sure that countless articles and videos have already been written and produced on this subject. However, I feel that it bears repeating as it can really improve your catch. 

It's a simple trick, and it can be the difference between getting skunked and catching fish. Sometimes, it even pays to tune a metal lip swimmer multiple times in a single trip.

Winter Largemouth Bass Fishing On Cape Cod

new hampshire largemouth bass

Ryan Collins

Cape Cod is blessed with some wonderful freshwater fishing! This rings especially true now that it's December. With the busy summer season behind us, most of the ponds on the Cape are deserted of people.

The scene is very peaceful, with few people, plenty of animals, and hungry fish! Right now is a great time to be fishing these ponds, especially if you like fishing from shore.

I don't know if it's true, but I have been told by "old timers" that Cape Cod has as many freshwater ponds as days of the year. Some of the largemouth bass in these ponds can reach 10 pounds!

December 12th Striped Bass Report

Ryan Collins

The weather so far this December on Cape Cod has been pretty phenomenal. This is especially true when compared to all the rain and wind we experienced during November.

Today was another beautifully crisp and refreshing day, with plenty of bright sunshine and not much wind. It was a gorgeous day to be outside.

I awoke today just before sunrise in order to complete some work on my computer. By 9AM I had accomplished what I needed to accomplish, so I dropped everything I was doing, packed up the truck with fishing gear and headed out.

Public Service Announcement: We Need to Learn How to Spell “Stripers”

Lauren Collins

This past year I have had the great opportunity to learn a lot about fishing (whether I wanted to or not).  If you've sent us an email over the past year, chances are it went to me first, because Ryan is literally never home in the summer.

I answered many of your questions, always by first asking Ryan what the answer is, and then responding to your emails as if I know everything there is to know about fishing.

You were probably very impressed, right??

All kidding aside, I can now tell you what setup to use at the canal, I can change your password for you, give you helpful advice on fishing around the Cape and refer you to the forum when I've run out of answers.

Exploring Puerto Vallarta Mexico (and dorado tacos)

Lauren Collins

Even the locals will tell you that some parts of Mexico are not to be dealt with.  You hear all the stories, but just like everywhere else in the world, there are those hidden gems you just have to see to believe.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is just that - a true gem nestled among mountains. The seaside city is so wonderful you just have to see it to believe it.

As usual, I found a great fishing spot for Ryan, even if I didn't mean to.  Nine years ago, my parents and I came here for a week and we all fell in love with the old town, known as Zona Romantica. We knew we had to someday come back.
