Cape Cod Bay Bluefin Tuna and Striper Report

72" Bluefin


June fishing is really going well right now in Cape Cod Bay.

This past Friday we had our first Tuna Charter of the season and got off to a great start.  We were fishing live bait on the South West Corner of Stellwagon and had great action from the beginning.  We had two hits and then scored on the third bite of the morning all in the first half hour.  After a 2 1/2 hour battle with one of the most stubborn bluefin I’ve ever seen, we landed the 72″ 200lb+ Bluefin above.  Great day as we started the season with the same customers that had our last Tuna charter of the 2009 season – and they brought all the gear for a mean sushi lunch back at the dock.

Striper fishing has been very consistent in the bay – Saturday we fished Provincetown, and Sunday Billingsgate Shoal – both had good numbers of fish making for fun days.  A big run on monster bass pushed through the canal this week – should make for some great fishing on a bigger class of fish.  There is a ton of large bait in the bay right now – this should keep these big girls happy and local for quite some time.

Inshore and offshore the fishing is great – give us a call as we have openings now before the tourist season gets in full swing.

Good luck,

Captain Don
