From the looks of our tournament standings the only people that are catching fish are the fishermen that name's start with the letter "G".

Remember that this tournament is $5 for bass and $5 for blues. The tournament goes through labor day, 1st place takes half the pot and 2nd and 3rd split the other half of the pot.

The first annual Scup Tournament was a great success. Bob Elliot took first place with his 2.9oz scup.

Nice fish Bob...even "Old Salt" looks pleased!!!

The party boats have been packed, running two trips a day. The scup fishing this year has been very productive with huge numbers of keeper scup. Fisherman have told us that anywhere on the south-side using sea-worms or squid, you are bound to find the scup.

The bluefish have been coming into shore in large schools. Whether early morning or later in the evening, anglers have been able to hook-up with some nice sized blues. The beaches off of Hyannis, Osterville and Cotuit are thick with blues. Still many anglers have been buying large krocodiles to attract these fish.

When the wind/rain hasn't been to strong anglers have been able to get out to Bishop & Clerks. Nice sized bass have been pulled up this week, however the bluefish have moved in strong in that area. No need to worry because there are still areas where anglers have been producing nice keepas. For example, head over to middle groud for some lunkers. We had reports of a boat that had 6 keepas in 1.5hr, fishing their "secret tide." So far we have not heard of a large number of blues at middle ground. We are getting to that point in the year when Toms Shoal (east side of MV) starts to produce nice fish jigging. We weighed one of Gary Brown's keepers in this morning at 36.5lb, remember that the fish don't care if its raining. They are already wet!!!!

The canal has stayed strong with bass being caught on both sides. Leo weighed in a 25lb bass that was caught on a kastmaster early morning on the cape side of the canal.

The North side has been on fire this week. From boat or shore the massive bass are on the north side. Enjoying a normal weekend on sandy neck Steve Orlando caught a nice 38in bass using sea-worms. However after filleting the bass its stomach was packed with sand-eels.

Another customer was fishing Barnstable harbor with live eels, producing large number of 36-40in fish. If you can use mackerel or fresh sand-eels you should get into the fish. Chartreuse/silk ice colored Slug-go's rigged with a jig head are a great lure to throw in the harbor. Our first reports of the massive bluefish are in Barnstable harbor. Our sand-eel man was out yesterday raking the sand-eels for us and gave us an interesting report. He said when he was out on the flats he could see large fluke cruising around. This is a great sign and gives a sneak peak towards fluking in Barnstable Harbor this year.

Good news for the tuna fisherman...the giants are already in. We had one report this week that a fisherman was out east of Chatham trying for some tuna. Unfortunately, the weather was to rough and he had no luck. However, he had a friend that was in a spotter plane the next day and saw giant blue-fin tuna.

The Bass and pickerel bite have been good at many of the local ponds. We weighed in a 3.5lb largemouth this week caught on yum worms. The trout are on the bite if you sink a shiner to the deeper parts of the lakes.

Remember that this fishing report is based on your fishing trips so remember to let us know how you did. Also feel free to send us any pictures that you take.
