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.

Norโ€™ Easter Peanut Bunker Blitz!

Ryan Collins

The wind is howling on Cape and the waves are huge! However, some of the protected coves and bays are producing awesome blitzes with bass on peanut bunker.

This fishing adventure began yesterday morning before sunrise.The trees in my yard were swaying back and forth, and rain was starting to fall, as I drove out of my neighborhood to the beach.

I knew conditions would be pretty miserable, but being outside during inclement weather makes me feel alive. Feeling the sharp sting of an October Nor' Easter on my face is a sure fire way of waking up in the morning!

Cape Cod Grey Seal Caught On Drone

Ryan Collins

Recently I have been having a ton of fun observing wildlife from above using my drone. For example, last Friday morning I filmed this school of blitzing stripers.

A few days earlier on September 24th I captured another surprise under a bright bluebird sky and perfectly sunny conditions. 

At first I wasn't sure what I was looking at, but as I lowered the drone for a closer look I realized it was a large adult grey seal cruising calmly and peacefully through weed beds.

You can watch a preview of the video below! ๐Ÿ‘‡
