Cape Cod Fishing Reports

May 23, 2008

Bass fishing has been solid for two weeks in a row!!!!!!

Sorry about the late fishing report we have just been busy getting your fishing equipment ready for this weekend.

Finally, fishermen can get their boats wet and head out to Bishops. Just last night we had Sumner Herbe report that he had some action on storm shads and slug-gos. Although he didn't land the bass he was confident that there was some weight to the fish. We weighed in a nice 20 pounder from Bishops 3 days ago using a 9in storm shad. Also, jigging hairball lures have pulled up some nice bass. Bass fishing from shore has stayed red hot. Fisherman have used anything from swimmers at night, to poppers during the day to land nice fish. Stuart brought in a 27 pounder that he caught the night before on a local beach.

Nice fish Stu!

The mackerel are reported to be pretty spotty on the north side, however when you can jig some up they are like gold. Some of my buddies have been out on sandy neck the past few days/nights and have reported that they were catching schoolies on sand eels. However, they did mention that there was some seaweed in close so they had to put a heavier sinker on to cast past the weeds. Only a matter of time before the bigger ones are caught off the Neck.

The canal continues to be hot due to the schools of bunker that have stalled in that area. Some of the locals around this area said that they were chunking bunker as well as throwing the yozuri plug (that looks like a bunker) and have produced nice keepaaas.

Buzzards Bay has been awesome producing keepas anywhere from 30-40in fish. We had a report saying that a man was using 6in bunker storms and was slamming keepas in the middle of the day.

The blue fish have been coming into the beaches in massive schools. Any beach along Nantucket Sound has been a good spot for catching fish, but it seems that high tide has been the best time for catching the bluefish. Oregon is still loaded with big blues with less keepaa bass. The best bet is the large krocodile which has been flying out of the shop. They have put out a new mackerel pattern in this spoon that the blues have been going crazy for.

The three bays area in Osterville/Cotuit is loaded with bait and striped bass. This is probably one of the best spots around right now so keep it on the DOWN LOWWWW! I have been going out to hit up the late night tides this week and have been hammering nice keepas. Now what I'm using for bait to catch these keepas can be found out by making a small donation to the Tyler W. Hook fund or purchasing me a new vehicle(either one of the two). No just kidding, I have been using the new herring color for the past two weeks and killing fish on it.

Our first reports are in on the scup. Nice 10-14in scup are in at Colliers Ledge out in front of Hyannis Harbor. The guy was out on Thursday and he was using seaworms to grab these scup. Remember that the scup have to be 10.5 inches to keep and your only allowed 10 fish.

Trout fishing has been great and die hard freshwater guys have been pumped with the small crowds at the ponds. Trout fishermen have been sticking to the thomas spoon and live shiners. Also we weighed in a largemouth bass that was a little over 8 pounds!!!!

Time to call in sick and get out on the water because the fishing is awesome!!!!!
