Cape Cod Fishing Reports
July 1, 2010

Hope everyone has had an excellent week, filled with tight lines and bent rods! The fishing continues to be more then decent in the Cape Cod Bay area with Striped bass, bluefish, tuna and bottom fish activity.

Race Point
With Barnstable harbor slowing down, anglers having been making their way to Race Point for some phenomenal striper and tuna action. Reports of big bass hitting wire lined jigs have been very continuous, along with reports of tuna hitting anywhere from 40 feet deep right up to the surface. Yesterday morning 100 pound class tuna were rolling on the surface but were extremely finicky and all hook up attempts failed. Sports Port's own, Josh, was out at the Race (with every other boat owner on the Cape!) casting for Tuna. He hooked into a giant throwing a Slug-go, but the fish broke the hook. fish

Nantucket Sound
Down in the Sound things have drastically changed for the better! Sea Bass, fluke, scup, bluefish and stripers are all in full feed. In and around Bishop and Clerks the bass have been somewhat spotty, but there have been reports of nice stripers hitting live scup, jigs and umbrellas. Monomoy has had some excellent striper action on parachute flies, wire lining parachute jigs, umbrellas and top water. Every shoal is loaded with huge schools of bass up into 20 pounds. There have also been a few reports of big bass around Martha's Vineyard hitting live scup. The sea bass fishing has been very good around the Cotuit, Osterville and Hyannis area on cut squid and Spro jigs. Fluke has had a slow start this year but many fishermen have found some good spots to catch them. Middle Ground and Menemsha have had some decent action with some barely legal fluke. Scup fishing has been good for those who seek the bottom pigs; Dowses beach continues to be a favorite for many scup seekers.

Fresh Water
Those who don't forget about pond fishing this time of year have been rewarded with some nice trophies! Hamblin's has still been producing some big brown and rainbow trout on powerbait and spinners. For the insomniac angler, small mouth fishing at night has been excellent on giant top water lures in some select small mouth ponds.

Have a great 4th of July weekend!
