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.

Upcoming Tuna Fishing & Shark Viewing Trips

Ryan Collins

The 2019 season is flying by and I honestly cannot believe that late summer and fall is right around the corner!

Late August through September is quite possibly my favorite time of the year. The weather is good, the crowds have thinned out, and the fishing is usually productive.

In this post I want to let you know about some new upcoming group fishing trips, as well as great white shark viewing trips

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

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.

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.
