Squid Are Here, But Not For Long

Kevin Collins

Hello and welcome to the second episode of the 2018 My Fishing Cape Cod podcast! This episode was recorded Thursday evening, and we have a ton of exciting news to share with you on this sunny Friday.

It's been a slow start to the striper season, but in this podcast you will learn about the few select areas on Cape where striped bass of up to 30 inches have been caught by My Fishing Cape Cod members.

You will also learn about the "lights out" squid fishing bite, which probably will not last for too much longer, as scup and other predatory fish return to the Sounds, and chase the squid away.


Ryan Collins

MFCC Founder

We start with a call to MFCC founder Ryan Collins, who talks about the lack of a substantial striper bite thus far in May, with bass of up to 30 inches appearing in just a few select spots.

Ryan also outlines the variety of other fish which can be targeted right now off the Cape, including a phenomenal squid bite that probably won't last for too much longer.

Sam Brown

The Goose Hummock

​​​In this episode we welcome Sam Brown to the MFCC Podcast for the first time ever! Sam joins the show to talk about his fishing background and his roll at the Goose Hummock.

Sam is an avid fresh and saltwater angler, and he gives a freshwater trout report as well as speculation on when striped bass will move into Cape Cod Bay. 

Jeff Miller

Canal Bait & Tackle

Next up is our good friend Jeff Miller of Canal Bait & Tackle, who joins us straight from the dentist's chair! What dedication! 

We check-in with Jeff each and every week to see what's going on at the Cape Cod Canal. This week Jeff gives us a full canal update, including encouraging reports of small fish feeding sporadically on the surface in the canal.

  1. Kevin,

    I’ve never been squidding before, but my interest has been piqued. Can they be caught from shore? Would you consider doing a short article or video on how to target squid from shore, if its possible?


    1. They can definitely be caught from shore Wilson, and yes if I get a chance to make a video this spring/summer, then I definitely will.

      In the meantime I just made this post in the forum about squidding from shore, which might be helpful >
