Ryan Collins

MFCC Founder

This week Ryan reports extremely warm water temperatures inside Cape Cod Bay. The striper fishing has been slow lately for Ryan, but the action with bluefin tuna has been great! Fluke are also biting in Buzzard's Bay. *In addition, Ryan is giving away a MFCC plug bag to any members who leave a comment at the bottom of this post. 👇Giveaway is closed, winner is Ben Parnicutt - congrats Ben!

Evan Eastman

Eastman's Sport & Tackle

Our next guest is my buddy Evan Eastman of Eastman's Sport & Tackle on Main St. in Falmouth.
Evan reports a relatively good striper bite for anglers casting eels along the south side and down the Elizabeths. Real big bass have been tough to find. Evan is also expecting the bonito action to heat up any day now in Vineyard Sound. Horseshoe Shoal and Hedge Fence have been producing good bluefish. Blues can also be found feeding under birds in Buzzard's Bay.

Jeff Miller

Canal Bait & Tackle

Third up is Jeff Miller of Canal Bait & Tackle. The bass fed heavy in the canal this past Monday and Tuesday, right before the thunderstorms and tornado hit Cape Cod. The past 48 hours has been slower at the Big Ditch, but some decent fish were caught yesterday evening around dinnertime by anglers fishing bait on the bottom. Jeff thinks a lot of the big fish followed the pogie schools up to Boston, but he also thinks the action in the canal will pickup by his birthday (August 5th). Jeff feels the double star tides which are coming up soon will be dynamite.

Sam Brown

The Goose Hummock

We complete this episode with a call to Sam Brown of the Goose Hummock Shops in Orleans and Dennis. Sam reports that the shop is undamaged after the tornado and nobody is hurt, but there is a lot of damage in Chatham, Harwich and Yarmouth. There's been a lot of small stripers and bluefish off the backside and at Monomoy, but big bass are harder to come by. Most of the commercial bass guys are reporting lots of shorts, and not many sellable fish. Bluefin tuna are here in abundance, but the price of tuna is very low, and some commercial anglers haven't been able to find anyone to buy tuna.
