Fishing For Tuna 100 Miles Off Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Ryan Collins

It still boggles my mind that it's now possible to do a day trip to the Northeast Canyons, which are located about 100 miles south/southeast of Cape Cod & the Islands.

As long as the wind is calm a trip to the canyons takes about 3.5 hours. For a day trip, this means leaving the dock very early, while it's still dark.

For this trip, we departed the dock last week on July 17th at the odd hour of 2:45am. I would be fishing this canyon which is located about 100 miles offshore.

Onboard for this trip were MFCC members Ted and Kurt Saraceno, along with their friend Rob (who's also a member of MFCC). Thank you again fellas for inviting me along on this trip!

86in Bluefin Tuna | July 22 Report

Ryan Collins

Yesterday morning I met captain Cullen of Cape Star Charters, and MFCC members Darren Jacobs, Steve Gopoyan and Mike Hawthorne for a morning of tuna fishing off Cape Cod.

Originally for this group trip we were supposed to be going for stripers, but with the bite for big bass being on the slow side, Cullen recommended we switch tactics and try for tuna instead.

Everyone onboard was excited about the chance to hopefully not just hook into a tuna, but to also play witness to the amazing marine life which is abundant right now off the Cape. What ensued was one of the most memorable group fishing trips of the year.

Cajun Clam Pasta

Lauren Collins

A major twist on the classic linguine with clam sauce (vongole).  This dish is creamy, full of flavor, a little spicy and so, so good.

A little garnish of toasted and seasoned breadcrumbs never hurt anyone either!

This recipe is inspired by a dish I had this past winter that I can't stop thinking about.  I love linguine with clam sauce, and whenever I go out to an Italian restaurant, I usually order it (or the ciopinno) (or the seafood fra diablo).  

If you're a fan of littlenecks, love cajun flavors and pasta is your jam, then this should be your next dinner idea.  It is easy to put together and although I use the words "rich" and "creamy", it is secretly light, with no cream whatsoever, so you can indulge a little this summer!

Top 3 “Wildlife Moments” from My Week of Fishing on Cape Cod

Ryan Collins

The month of July has been busy and fun! I have been attending weddings, cookouts, and a baby's first-ever birthday party. 😎

I also needed to change the wires and plugs on my Evinrude Etech 150hp engine. The engine has nearly 5,000 hours, but it still works well!

On Tuesday my friend Rich fixed my engine, and yesterday I was able to launch my boat for the first time since the handle on my trailer winch popped off and smacked me in the face, resulting in 3 chipped teeth!

How to Vertical Jig for Bluefin Tuna off Cape Cod

Ryan Collins

Vertical jigging for tuna is a highly effective technique off Cape Cod, especially when tuna are feeding down below in deep water.

Jigging for tuna is also something you can do when drifting live bait or casting other lures.

A lot of times all you need to do is drop your jig down to where the fish are feeding, and just let the motion of the boat impart action to the lure. There is often not much "jigging" done at all.

Summer Meal Idea: Tuna Poke Bowls

Lauren Collins

To me, summer on Cape Cod means fresh caught fish.  When I'm really lucky, sometimes Ry-guy even brings me home a fresh tuna filet, and things get really exciting.

If you love sushi, then you'll love these tuna poke bowls.  Most famously found in places like Hawaii and now seen in restaurants pretty much everywhere, this is a delicious way to enjoy freshly caught tuna.

Think of a tuna poke bowl as like a deconstructed sushi roll.  There is the rice, the marinated fish, and the other additions such as creamy avocado, crisp cucumber, sesame seeds, sweet mango and pickled ginger.  You could also add in sliced jalapeños, scallions, shiitake mushrooms, or any other number of vegetables and flavors.

For this recipe, I want to share with you a simple way to create this very popular dish.  You can also use fresh salmon, or, if you don't like raw fish, you could do this with cooked shrimp.

Amazing Underwater Footage Of Striped Bass In Their Natural Habitat

Ryan Collins

The sun was shining this past Wednesday when I donned my wet suit and entered the ocean for my first snorkeling session of the summer.

I still love snorkeling our local Cape Cod waters, despite the high numbers of full grown adult great white sharks in the area.

When snorkeling you never know what you may encounter, and this past Wedneday's snorkeling trip was no exception!
