Your Cape Cod Fishing Report

Gloomy weather has the fish biting all over the Cape!

Buzzards Bay is boasting a great tautog bite. The fish are still shallow and soaking green crabs on jigs are working the best at this time. There were some striped bass lurking around the entrance of the canal earlier in the week as well as some false albacore. Shore anglers had their shot and hooked up with 2oz Deadly Dick lures.

Vineyard Sound has been the most constant spot to find false albacore lately. From Quicks Hole north to Woods Hole fish can be found but have not been “schooled” up. Occasional breaks tight to the shore of the Elizabeth’s warrants blind casts. Jim O’Hare hooked up with this nice albie on Tuesday morning using this technique.


Quicks Hole had some top water bass action on fish from25-30” and Cuttyhunk saw much of the same fishing as well.

Monomoy still has some fish cruising around, both bass and false albacore. Around the point up to Chatham, the vertical jig bite is back on as a large school of bass has moved in from the 3 mile line. Ava Maria and Hogy SI Sandeel jigs are working great on these fish.

More of the same in Cape Cod Bay as we wait for a push of fish to come in from Boston and the North shore. Small fish from the beaches as well as larger bass around Sandy Neck with the tube and worm and eel crowd. As the water temps drop to the north, CC bay should fill in with our fall run of fish. Keep your fingers crossed!
