Thank you for checking out today's new episode of My Fishing Cape Cod TV, I really appreciate it. Spring has arrived and before we know it the saltwater fishing season will be back in full swing.
If you've been watching the TV show for any amount of time you've probably noticed I don't mention exactly where I'm fishing. I do this intentionally because the TV show is broadcast to a lot of people. Naming exact spots on the TV show could draw crowds and cause problems.
With that said I do feel comfortable sharing some additional information about locations with the members of My Fishing Cape Cod who support what I do. After all, one of the promises I make to people who signup for a membership is that MFCC membership will make it easier to catch fish on Cape.
In this post I'd like to share well balanced information about some of the locations shown in today's episode. When I say well balanced information about locations, I am talking about general areas, as opposed to exact GPS coordinates.
Episodes 4 & 5: Summer of 2022
Episode 3: Late May
Episode 2: Late April & Early May
In this episode we start in late April by catching tautog from shore.
The general area where I filmed this video is shown within the confines of the map below.
In the second part of today's episode we go haddock fishing with captain Jimmy the Greek of On Time Charters.
I wouldn't dare share exactly where we were fishing for those haddock! Nevertheless, you can get a general idea by viewing the map below.
Episode 1: March & April
In this episode we start in mid-March by catching killifish and mummichogs to use as live bait for holdover stripers. We also encountered a pack of three coyotes in this marsh.
The estuary where I caught the killifish and saw the coyotes is shown within the confines of the map below.
48 hours after trapping the killifish I launched my kayak and fished the upper reaches of a different estuary.
Members of My Fishing Cape Cod can view the general area on Cape where I caught the holdover striper below.
In the second part of this episode my friend Garet Suomala and I trolled for trout from my little 12 foot Lund aluminum boat.
The town in which we were fishing is shown in the map below.
The wind was howling at 30 knots and air temperatures were in the 40's at the third place we visited in the March & April episode.
This is where we hold our annual long-distance casting competition.
Towards the end of the episode I did some filming at the Goose Hummock's Kids Fishing Festival.
After the festival I did some trout fishing of my own at the state park shown below.
At the very end of the episode I headed back into the marshes to do some cleaning up. This is the estuary where I removed the tire at the end of the episode.
It's also the same place I caught the killifish, and filmed the coyotes, swans and geese.
My Fishing Cape Cod TV will be airing on NBC Sports Boston each Saturday morning at 9:30am now through April 15th, with a repeat on Sunday. I will also be sharing each episode here on the website for members.
Throughout the next several weeks I will add additional information to this post about some of the places I fish and visit in season 6 of My Fishing Cape Cod TV. Please check back each week for updates!

Really enjoyed the Summer of 2022 | Part 2 episode. I liked how you showed not only fishing but foraging for wild blueberries and raspberries. So many beautiful places at the Cape. Also, it was great to see Lauren reeling in a striper. Great episode!!!
Thanks for tuning-in Marie! I appreciate you watching!
Last year I really fell in love with foraging for wild berries, and as you mention, there are so many beautiful places on Cape to do it. Gardening has also found a place in my heart as of late. Lauren and I have really enjoyed creating a little “oasis” on our little 1 acre lot. I’ll tell her you say hello.
I hope you have a good weekend and thanks again! 🎣
Good Morning I liked the striped bass with Mother and wife and would like to make a comment that you find a leather belt rod holder for to use. She may well get hurt fighting a fish in the manner I watched her do . Peace and Prayers
You’re right Carl! She definitely could benefit from a leather belt rod holder. I’ll have to get her one for this next season.
You could come over to the house and take some measurements from the ones I use and perhaps have them made a little smaller for honey and mother . I good shoe cobbler could whip them up in know time . Peace and Prayers
Great videos as always. Can’t wait till September to make our annual trip to truro. Tight lines
I’m glad you enjoyed the video Ryan, and Truro in September sounds perfect to me. I love that area of the Cape. Please keep in touch this season!
Watched the second episode on TV this morning. Couldn’t believe the Tog you got from shore, well done!
That was one of the most fun trips I had all year. Hope to repeat it again next month!
Congratulations on your first TV show of 2023. Mike and I just finished watching. We loved it. I loved watching you trap, bait, catch trout and Lauren cooking trout! Maybe I’ll keep my catch one of these days! I loved your efforts in cleaning up trash, it’s a great message. Thank You! BTW I was at the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown yesterday. They are very aware of the Holtec situation. They are working with several EPA’s such as Stellwagon Bank in fighting the dumping of “dirty, nuclear waste water” into Cape Cod Bay. I mentioned MFCC endeavors as well. The CCS mentioned that writing to Senator Markey is one of the best ways to fight Holtecs plan. I had written to Senator Markey a while back when you had mentioned this is our forum. Thank Again Ryan! Tight lines!
I’m glad you guys enjoyed the episode! And that’s nice to hear about the Center for Coastal Studies being involved with the Holtec situation. Thank you for writing to senator Markey. Every little bit helps. I hope you and Mike enjoy the rest of your weekend!
