Outer Cape Fishing Report – September 21, 2018

Connie over at Blackbeard’s in Eastham said the fishing from the outer Cape beaches has been pretty much the same as it has all season: mostly small bass on plugs and plastics, with an occasional just over legal fish mainly on bait, especially sand eels.

There are tuna being caught up off the Golf Balls as well as off Nauset; these are large fish, not the footballs that many people are used to targeting with casting gear, so making sure your equipment is up to the task is critical right now. The tuna have been caught both jigging and casting topwater plugs, with sand eels and some halfbeaks what they are feeding on.
