It may be October, but false albacore are still here on Cape Cod. If we are lucky, then maybe the albies will stick around until Halloween, before they migrate south.
Over the past few years I've caught my share of albies while fishing from my kayak and from boats. So this year I decided to devote more time to fishing for albies from shore.
Catching false albacore from shore on Cape Cod is no easy task! The fish move at lightning speed and often feed way out of casting range. Then, once you finally get a cast into them, there is a good chance the albies will be finicky, and refuse to bite your lure.
This week I am happy to report that I finally had success with catching an albie from the beach. On the morning of Wednesday October 7th I got lucky, and encountered groups of feeding, aggressive albies within casting range.
