Our next fishing report podcast will be two weeks from today, but once the Cape Cod  saltwater fishing season really gets going we will plan on publishing these fishing reports and podcasts weekly.

Herring Are On Their Way To Cape Cod

Each spring, herring migrate from the open ocean into Cape Cod streams and rivers.  

For centuries on Cape Cod, river herring were harvested for many different reasons.  However today, they are a protected species.

According to what I've heard, herring have so far been spotted in Middleboro and Orleans. Have you seen any herring? Please let me know by commenting below!

I personally have not yet seen any, although I haven't really been looking for them. Last year I spotted herring for the first time at the Bournedale herring run on April 9th.

Getting Started With Lobstering

Lobster fishing has been entrenched in our history for centuries. In colonial times, it was seen as peasant food made for the lower class citizens.

That notion has shifted dramatically since those times. Lobster is now one of the staple seafoods across the country and we’re lucky to have such an abundant resource right here in our New England waters!

Lobster can be made into a variety of dishes, from simple boiled lobster dinner to the more elaborate clambake. There’s no limit to what you can make with these tasty aquatic "bugs". ?

Many people don’t realize that fishing for these crustaceans is not only for the commercial fleet. Recreational fishermen, like myself, can do it too.

In this article, I'll share with you 8 tips for getting started recreational lobstering in Massachusetts. ?

Yellow perch are native to Cape Cod's ponds, and fishing for yellow perch with lures and live bait can be very productive during late winter and early spring.

You can continue reading below for my latest yellow perch freshwater fishing report. ? ?
