Bacon Wrapped Chili Dusted Scallops with Corn Salad

Lauren Collins

Bacon wrapped sea scallops baked and broiled to perfection with a chili and panko dusting and a sprinkle of manchego cheese, topped with tequila lime sauce.

It may sound like a complicated recipe, but I promise you it's really not.  

These are definitely not your typical bacon wrapped scallops you find at parties and weddings, no sir.  Just imagine the buttery taste and texture of fresh scallops, crisp bacon, sharp and salty manchego cheese and a creamy tequila lime sauce that will knock your socks off.  Served with a warm corn salad.

False albacore usually show up in good numbers throughout Cape Cod and the Islands beginning in early September.

Personally I have not encountered any false albacore yet this season, but hopefully that will change soon! The first false albacore of the year could show up any day now.

Today I would like to share with you some helpful tips and strategies for fly fishing for albies here on Cape Cod.

This video was filmed during a taping of My Fishing Cape Cod TV, with Dave Steeves of the Goose Hummock Shops and TheMightyFish.com

Wild Topwater Bluefin Tuna Feeds | August 17th, 2019

Ryan Collins

This past Saturday August 17 myself, captain Cullen of Cape Star and MFCC members Jim Murphy and Cal Wheaton met at 5AM to go hunting for bluefin tuna off Cape Cod.

The plan was to hopefully locate some wild topwater feeds and cast swimming lures to school bluefin tuna in the 50-65 inch range.

The trip was fast-paced and pretty intense. The tunas were busting like crazy on the surface chasing bait but they were incredibly finicky and difficult to fool.

As always, it would be awesome to have you and your friends onboard for one of these memorable adventures. 👇

Jonah Crab & Corn Cakes

Lauren Collins

Light, airy Jonah crab cakes, made with freshly picked summer sweet corn and perfect for an app or a meal.

I used my handy air fryer for this recipe, which is great when you don't want to turn on the oven on a hot day, but I have directions for the oven as well!

You can make a quick lime crema to go with these crab cakes, or they taste great with a southwestern style salad, with ingredients like fresh pico de gallo, avocado and cilantro.  You can also freeze them to enjoy in the colder months.

Nighttime Peanut Bunker Bass Blitz

Ryan Collins

This past Tuesday night I donned my bathing suit and hit the beach at 11pm in search of stripers.

The moon was nearly full, and it was shining brightly through the foggy mist and clouds. The wind was dead calm.

I quietly walked down the beach, making sure not to disturb anyone who may be sleeping in the nearby houses. After a 20 minute walk I arrived at the spot, hopeful that some fish would be home.

Huge Great White Shark Off Cape Cod, MA

Ryan Collins

Yesterday afternoon while on a trip with Cape Star Charters we encountered a huge great white shark that was cruising over a shallow sandbar off Cape Cod, MA.

Great white sharks are here in abundance and yesterday we spotted a half dozen great whites in under 2 hours time.

Successfully filming the largest shark was a challenge, but we managed to capture some pretty amazing drone and underwater footage which you can preview below! 👇

Cajun Grilled Swordfish with Mango Salsa

Lauren Collins

In the middle of the summer, especially in August, no one really wants to be stuck in the kitchen cooking over a hot stove!  It's grilling season!

This Cajun Grilled Swordfish with Mango Salsa is the perfect solution!


Mango salsa is a great staple to have in your fridge during the summer.  Not only is it great over fish or chicken, but also great for tacos, tossed in salads and of course just keeping it simple with some tortilla chips.  It requires little time, and a big batch can last days in your fridge.
