This weekend I had the pleasure of taking out Dick and his son Daniel for some light tackle fun and it was a blast to say the least. The first day was quite windy and we had to fish jigs; they produced well but the wind would not lay down and we hit the barn early to save some energy for the next day. Got a decent early start the next morning despite the negative tides. This paid off as we caught lots of bass and a few bluefish. Most of the action was on top with explosive takes, what a great morning. Then we opted to go chase tuna and this was a good choice as the fish were all over the place, smashing sea herring. Daniel had multiple shots right in the feeding frenzy with plenty of swings and misses and the captain had a couple of run offs but could not keep one stuck. The fish are very aggressive and are looking like they are going to be 65 to 75 inch range this year so it will be a very serious game. They are bruisers and need to be fished that way, so gear up. Thanks for an awesome couple of days and I look forward to the next one.


Mid week I had Doc and Seuss for three days. We covered all the bases, fishing the ocean and bay, skinny water to as much as 200 ft. The fishing has been great and did not disappoint, with fish coming on the fly as well as light tackle. The sheer numbers of bass ranging in all sizes was great to see. We did look for charlie but the one day we had a chance to look we did not see that much and the numbers of bass kept us catching. We did manage a few slob bluefish in the mix but they are slow to make a showing. The tuna are knocking on our door and should be here very shortly. Seems as though everything is early with all the nice weather we're having.

Thanks guys


bay bass

Today Alan and I had a fish outing shakedown run of my boat the Osprey. Saw plenty of big stuff but they were on the shy side. Did manage a few on the fly and some vertical, sweet day, back at it in the morning. The new got-stryper baits performed great, and I cant wait to see how they preform this year check them out at your local tackle shop.


Cape Cod fishing 2010

The start of a new year is always something to look forward to. I have been working on the boat like a dog, and it will pay off soon. I managed to get some cod trips in they were very productive with great catches. As we speak the bass and blues are filtering in to Cape cod bay in decent numbers with some rather large stuff being caught. The South side has been slow but with the squid and sand-eels moving in it will only be a matter of days before the flats and rips start to produce. There have been some sightings of bluefin in small amounts and the bait on the bank has been thick herring, macs and sand-eels. The herring runs have been productive as well and that is a great sign for the forage the bigger fish need. There also seems to be a good charge of pogies around as well, all in all it is shaping up to be a great season for us on the sandbar we call home.
