October has arrived which means it's time to target tautog, which are perhaps the Cape's hardest fighting inshore fish!
This Friday we're offering a My Fishing Cape Cod tautog adventure with captain Tyler Putney of Flatliner Charters. This trip will last approximately 5 hours. Tautog is the primary target, but if the "fish gods" cooperate, then those onboard will also get a chance at catching some false albacore.
I'm bringing my wife to Logan Airport Friday morning so unfortunately I won't be onboard, but I know anyone who signs up will have a great time without me. Captain Tyler is terrific and tautog are fun to catch and amazing to eat.

What Members Have Been Saying About Fishing with Captain Tyler
Thanks for setting this up. I had a great day with Tyler.
I hooked 2 albies and landed one. The tog bite was spotty, and I respect and appreciate how hard Tyler worked to get us on fish. We went from Bourne to Falmouth, then out towards Cleveland Ledge, then back to Falmouth, through Woods Hole over to the Vineyard, then back along the Elizabeth Islands and through Robinison's where we got into stripers, blues and black sea bass on the Buzzards Bay side of the Elizabeth Islands. We caught lots of blues which is always fun. My wife and I cooked and enjoyed them that night, and made a bunch of bluefish cakes for later.
Thank you very much for setting up the charter with captain Tyler this past week.
I’ve been after an up north albie for 6 years, having only successfully landed a couple Spanish mackerel in my home waters of south dartmouth. I was extremely pleased to see the tie job on my 15lb leader held up catching several fish on my own rig.

Everyone was happy with the trip.
Just wanted to give you an update on today's trip with Tyler. I'm glad we got a chance to get out there with the threat of thunderstorms today. We ending up chasing pogie schools. Then snagging/live lining them and also fishing dead pogies. Both methods worked and we ended up catching around 10-12 fish overall. All of them slot or larger. The biggest was 37 1/2". Everyone was happy with the trip. Good day considering Tyler had to adjust his plans due to the weather. Hoping to get out there on another trip this year if more are added.

Went out Saturday morning with Tyler and had an absolute great time.
Incredibly foggy, but calm waters and we caught a ton of fish. Would definitely take another trip with Tyler. Three of us on the trip, we all ended up with a keeper. Made a refreshing ceviche appetizer followed by a simple baked filet with olive oil, lemon and bread crumbs. Keep Tyler on the circuit!

It was a wonderful trip.
Met 2 other MFCC members and topped my previous personal best 2 times with the largest measuring 38”. Great day.

Tyler is a great captain and I'd go out with him again in a flash.
We had a great trip yesterday and were in stripers for 3 straight hours. I got around 14 into the boat, mostly 28-30 inch range. I think I was the "low person" in the boat, because we must have had around 80. Three of us were on at same time. It was my best striper trip ever.

We had a really good crew and the captain was great.
It was insane. I personally caught 26 fish. Just an epic day.
