Capt. Mike reviews his top 5 spots for targeting bluefin tuna just outside of Cape Cod Bay, including Stellwagen Bank, the Lanes, the Tuna Coast and Peaked Hill Bar.
There’s nothing better than finding a pod of tuna in open water and having it all to yourself. But, I have noticed over the years how focused anglers have become on reports seemingly to a point where it might be counterproductive. Here are a few thoughts on how anglers can ditch the reports on and invent their own bites.
It’s amazing how the tuna fishery has changed as a result stronger and lighter outfits, stronger casting lures, fish finding technology and frankly, the word of mouth with the internet. It’s a welcome change for me. Here’s why.
When it comes to albies, anglers travel far and wide chasing rumors, reports and secret tips. Sometimes they are easy to find. Others, not so much. In any event, here’s a guide to some of the haunts that have produced fish for me over the past 25 years that I have been chasing these funny fish.
The days are long and the Stripers are close. With early mornings and late sunsets, it is very easy to fish around your work schedule. With kids still in school and sports in full crank, easy access is definitely a good this.
The Sand Eel jig is a particularly deadly sand eel imitation. It has replaced the classic diamond jig for many anglers in Cape Cod Bay and Monomoy Shoals. It can be fished fast or slow while jigging but it is also an effective casting lure. The jig can be used on tuna, stripers and albies depending on how you rig it.
Offshore lures are often referred to collectively as a spread. Like just about everything in life, there is more than one-way to skin the cat(fish). Here is a rundown of three classic spreads as I’ve learned from my years fishing south of the Martha’s Vineyard.
