Surfcaster’s Guide To Fishing Cuttyhunk Island

by Ryan Collins

Since starting My Fishing Cape Cod in 2011, we've had many excellent reports, articles, videos and other contributions from members.

Today I'm excited to share with you a comprehensive PDF created by New England outdoors writer, John D. Silva. This PDF taps out at 1,333 words and includes photographs. I would classify this PDF as a comprehensive overview of fishing Cuttyhunk Island.

I'm fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I've been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!

  • Thanks everyone. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with the wonderful folks that call Cuttyhunk home and those who help make it very special place.

    Hope to see you out there…


  • So close, yet so far away! This was a trip I wanted to make this summer – hopefully next summer. I’m always detoured by the boat ride/drive to New Bedford when I only live a few miles away and can see Cutty in the distance.

    Thanks for the write-up John!

  • I enjoyed your report John. Some good nuggets in there. I had the good fortune of talking with Captain Pete twice while at Cuttyhunk. He said fishing at Cuttyhunk was all about finding the bait.
