Ryan Collins

We kick off this podcast with a quick call to Ryan of MFCC. Over the past few days Ryan has been pre-fishing for tomorrow's Cheeky Schoolie Tournament. Ryan reports finding plenty of 20-27 inch stripers while fishing the Barnstable area.

Jeff Miller

Canal Bait & Tackle

Next up is our good friend Jeff Miller of Canal Bait & Tackle. Jeff has been busy getting the shop ready for the season, and reports stripers of up to 34 inches taken from the canal. There are still herring trickling in, but mackerel are most prolific off the East End, with pogies at the West End.

Evan Eastman

Eastman's Sport & Tackle

Batting third in today's podcast episode is our exciting new guest, Evan Eastman of Eastman's Sport & Tackle in Falmouth, MA. Evan is excited about how well the Bruins are playing! He also reports more action with schoolies and small keepers. Worm hatches are happening around Cape and giant scup and big tautog are still biting in Vineyard Sound and Buzzard's Bay.
