My Fishing Cape Cod is now 12 years old, and a lot has happened since I started MFCC during the winter of 2011.
The website has been a dream come true for me, and I'm happy to hear that members and fans alike have found MFCC to be a helpful and entertaining resource.
Today I wanted to re-recognize our ten longest standing members. I say re-recognize but I first published this list three years ago when MFCC was turning 10.
None of what you find on the MFCC website, email newsletter, or social media channels would be possible without membership support, so I can't thank you all enough!

"I’ve stuck with MFCC for so long because of the invaluable information and advice, the friendly community, and the fact that it changes with the times. When I became a member, back in 2012, I was desperate for local advice, and that came in the form of a ton of useful content about how to catch stripers on the Cape. I mean, while I would have eaten up any and all information I could regarding where the fish were biting, what I wanted was exactly what Ryan delivered—advice about how to find and catch fish on my own. It was a revelation when things clicked and I started to catch fish on a consistent basis. Now I can hardly understand why it seemed so hard at first.
Secondly, MFCC offers a friendly community of anglers with various backgrounds and experiences. Connecting with other anglers on the uniquely helpful online forum, in meetings and on group trips have not just made me a better informed fisherman, but have led to many lasting friendships.
Last, MFCC has continually evolved, with new features on the website, like the weekly podcasts, and opportunities for new experiences, like great white shark tours. Perhaps more importantly, it’s grown beyond a community that helps us anglers catch fish; it offers advice and advocacy to ensure the preservation of the fishery and the sport I’ve come to love."

"I first found MFCC while trying to learn more about tube and worming, as this was a technique I used to use with an old timer down the Cape.
When I finally bought my own boat I started my search for more knowledge about fishing the Cape. Upon finding MFCC I decided to join. After talking with members, meeting Ryan at the Sandwich Marina, and contributing some blog posts of my won to the site I was hooked!
Great site and community of fellow fisherman."

"I stayed with MFCC because you are good, honest, caring people, and simply put we need more folks like you members in this world. Ryan has always impressed me with his hard work and efforts. Ryan has a great knowledge of all types of fishing on Cape Cod and works hard to stay on top of the newest information."

"I've stayed with MFCC because members are more willing to share honest opinions and information here than anywhere else on the web. I also love that there is no "bashing". Other sites can be very toxic, but I have never seen that happen on MFCC. The podcasts are also really well done and informative."
Special thank you to each of the members listed above!
In addition, I would like to recognize the following honorable mentions. To be honest, the list below could extend for several pages, as we have hundreds of members that have been onboard for many years.
I want to thank each and every one of you for your support of the site!
Have you been onboard MFCC for several years now? If so then I'd love to hear from you! Please leave me a comment below.
