Cape Cod Canal Fishing Report – September 8, 2016

Action has been quite good throughout the Canal, with both bass and bluefish spread throughout the land cut. Pencil poppers and swimmers are the best choice when there are bluefish around, but many anglers continue to use mackerel, glow, or white Savage Sand Eels or Gag’s Whip-it Eels in hopes of getting below the choppers where the bass are hanging.

While the east end has typically had some of the best topwater/plugging action, the waters around the railroad bridge and Bell Road have been producing both bass and blues as well.

In terms of currents/tides, Bruce Miller explained that from about midway through west current until the change has seen the most activity, with things pretty much dying off once the water begins to run east.
