Cape Cod Bay


Cape Cod Bay Fishing Report – September 7, 2017

The challenge for most folks who fish in the bay this week has been the winds. Prior to this stretch of miserable fishing weather, the fishing down his way had been going downhill pretty rapidly. There were some bass still being caught by jigging wire off the north edge of Billingsgate, but if a boat managed to catch its limit, they were bringing fish just over the 28-inch minimum home.

The word from multiple sources is that the bite turned on in Cape Cod Bay today. If you were thinking that was around the Sandwich beaches and Scorton Ledge, you would be wrong, however. Boats fishing in deeper water, say 80 to 100 feet in the middle of the bay, did much better, especially on eels. These were big fish and they were hungry.


Cape Cod Bay Fishing Report – July 20, 2017

Barnstable Harbor is full of schoolies, but not much else. To the east, the charter fleet out of Rock Harbor and boats from Sesuit and even a few from Barnstable have been trolling the tube-and-worm or umbrella rigs. The general consensus towards the east entrance to the Canal is that a good number of the big fish that were in the land cut last week have followed the schools of pogies up towards Plymouth.
