Cape Cod Bay is on Fire!!!

The fishing in Cape Cod Bay is on fire! Both from the beaches and from the boats. The springtime run of Bass is on in full force. My crew has been fishing the Bayside beaches from Wellfleet to Dennis and they have been crushing the fish at night fishing the the high tides. They had one night where three of them landed 24 fish and had fish up to 36 inches and three sets of triples. Now that is some action!
This weekend some of the boats fished the Bay and reported their limits and then some. The fish were easy to find because the birds were all over them. You could catch them either trolling umbrella rigs, plugs, or casting soft plastics. The new Savage mackerel colored swim baits worked really well. The action is only going to get better and the next two months will bring the best bass fishing in the Bay for the year. It’s on so go get them.
The “Tammy Rose” is in the water and she is sporting all new Raymarine Electronics this year including the new “Chirp” sounder, 4ft HD Color Open Array Radar, Sirus weather, and two new hybrid touch display’s. Very excited about the new gear. “Tuna Fever” is getting an upgrade as I am in the process of moving my three year old Raymarine electronics from the Rose to the Fever. This will be nice to have HD Radar and a faster GPS then the old stuff that I had on her. We start tuna fishing on June 1st and mark my words, I want to go on the record as saying that this tuna season is going to be awesome. We are going to see big numbers of fish here this summer off of Chatham and they are going to feed. The amount of bait last year was some of the best I have seen in many years and this trend should continue. We had three distinct year class of fish here in big numbers which shows three years of successful breeding. We are in an up swing, not a down turn in the numbers of bluefin that we are seeing. So get you gear ready and get the boats tuned up. They will be here by Mem. Day weekend. We are booking trips now so call and get a prime time to go with us. Good luck and tight lines. The 2013 season is on!! Capt. Eric
