Back on November 7th I hosted a group of members from My Fishing Cape Cod for a live presentation, Q&A session, and online meetup.

Content included squid fishing, tautog fishing, striper fishing and more. If you are interested in re-living some of the fishing from this past spring, then this video presentation will be a worthwhile watch.

After adding a few more frisky mackerel to the live well, I punched in the GPS setting and turned Wingman east toward Billingsgate Shoal, located along the eastern side of Cape Cod Bay. 

It was a prefect early June day, with bright blue skies and a light breeze out of the south. Aboard for this season’s shakedown cruise were my mate Mark and his dad Chris. 

With our first charters of the season just days away, I wanted to ensure we were ready. As my boat the Wingman hopped up on plane and effortlessly cruised across the bay with engines humming in unison, I ran through a series of system checks with no issues noted.

All systems were go! As many Captains can relay, it felt like the boat and I were again tied together as one. Life was good!

It's a sunny, clear and cool day on Cape Cod, with a crisp breeze blowing from the west. In this video, I'd like to share with you a brand new Cape Cod fishing report and MFCC news update which I hope you will enjoy.

There are still striped bass being caught on Cape (more on that in the video), and bluefin tuna fishing could remain strong right through Thanksgiving. Tautog are also biting well.

However, on days like today, I can't help but reminisce and feel a little melancholic, as I daydream about watching the summer moonlight on Cape Cod Bay, or the sunrise over Nauset Beach.

Ever since I was a little kid, I have heard anglers talking about smoking bluefish. I've eaten smoked bluefish before and I've always enjoyed it.

However, it was not until the summer of 2020 that I finally tried smoking bluefish on my own. I'm happy to report that the results were great!

Smoked bluefish has now become one of my favorite locally available seafood items. In this report, I'd like to share with you what I've learned so far about smoking bluefish and smoked bluefish recipes.

This video post goes alongside the written report which I published earlier today. If you haven't read that report, then you can do so here.

Bluefish are not only good for smoking, but as many of you know, bluefish are also a lot of fun to catch. They are aggressive and fight hard.

In this video, you'll come along on a tin boat blue fishing adventure with my wife Lauren and I. This video was filmed on September 5th 2020 inside Cape Cod Bay.

Cape Cod's saltwater environment is a wild world. Each day on Cape, countless underwater dramas unfold as predators such as stripers, tuna and tautog hunt their prey.

The vast majority of the action is never witnessed by human eyes. However, in today's video I'm going to give you a glimpse of the fascinating world beneath the Cape's waves.

I filmed the following video on October 8th in Buzzard's Bay. In this video clip you'll see an estimated 2 pound bluefish in hot pursuit of a live killifish. I found the agility of both predator and prey to be fascinating.
