September 27th Striper Blitz Caught On Drone

Ryan Collins

At 8am this morning in this general area of Cape Cod, I was fortunate to encounter and film via drone a big striper blitz along the coastline.

I managed to catch a bundle of bass, but the real treat was observing the striper blitz from above!

Fishing The Beach On Cape Cod During A Nor’ Easter

Ryan Collins

Surfcasting the beach on Cape Cod during a nor' easter can be a challenge, with big waves and often a lot of weed - but it can also produce great fishing.

However, fishing in these difficult conditions can be extremely difficult, and at times pretty dangerous. For example, I don't recommend wading or going any deeper than shin deep water during a storm, due to strong currents and riptides.

Nevertheless great surf fishing can occur during nor' east storms when large schools of baitfish (especially peanut bunker) get swept up in the waves and pinned against the shoreline.

Woods Hole Brown Shark Adventure and Surprise

Steve O'Malley

member since 2014

This past Sunday morning started like any other. The plan was to be up and on the boat before dawn, send and receive a few texts with my MFCC network, and then head out looking for the early bite.

The fishing in Buzzards Bay has been a little slow lately. They’re here, somewhere, but finding bass and albies hasn’t been easy for me.

On this day we had one boat from MFCC running through the canal to check Scorton Ledge for bass, and another boat was working the west end of the canal and upper Buzzard's Bay for bass and albies.

My idea was to run down south through Buzzard's Bay to Vineyard Sound. With a plan in place I headed south, hoping for fish, and expecting adventure.

Tarpaulin Cove Light | Drone Video

Ryan Collins

Yesterday morning while fishing along the Elizabeth Islands I took a moment to capture historic Tarpaulin Cove Light on drone. It was a gorgeous sight!

The light was originally constructed in 1759 and has undergone many changes over the years. Hurricanes have destroyed certain parts and the main tower was replaced in 1891. 

Yesterday my friend Jay Mazzola and were fishing for albies in Tarpaulin Cove and I filmed this drone video at around 8:00am. Please click play below to watch! 👇

Close Encounter With An Ocean Sunfish

Ryan Collins

September is a fantastic month for spotting ocean sunfish (mola molas) here on Cape Cod.

Mola molas are one of the heaviest known bony fishes in the world, weighing as much as 2,000 pounds!

Back on Sunday September 15th I launched my kayak in Cape Cod Bay and paddled about 1/2 mile offshore to where several molas were "sunning themselves" in the abundant sunshine.

The Albies Are Finally Less Finicky!

Ryan Collins

When the albies first arrived on Cape Cod back in late August, they were extremely finicky and difficult to catch!

However, recently the false albacore in our area have finally started feeding on larger baits, which is making them much easier to fool.

Quite a few of our members in the forum are also reporting hookups with albies, and in this post I will fill you in on what I've been seeing out there.

Linguine alle Vongole

Lauren Collins

Linguine alle Vongole is a classic Italian dish that is surprisingly simple to make.  It's a great way to enjoy local littleneck clams, and takes only 20 minutes or so to put together.

The simple flavors of this Italian dish are what make this one of my favorite pasta dishes of all time.

When I was in college, I worked at an Italian restaurant in Providence, RI that was famous for their linguine with clams - it was even featured on Food Network!  They offered red or white sauce, and if you know what's best for you, you order the white sauce.  Red sauce is good I guess, but white sauce is out of this world.

The rich white wine sauce leaves you scrambling for some bread to sop it all up when you're done, even after you just inhaled an entire plate of pasta.  Unfortunately, the restaurant has since closed, so I made it my mission to make my own.
