Went out yesterday, down the backside, the Race, Herring Cove, Wood End, no real marks and no real fish, I think for striped bass and blues we are done for the year. We did get 12 inch schoolie bass at Wood End, but not enough to take folks out on a charter for!
The Beth Ann will still be doing full or per person tuna charters. Eight to ten hours, up to four people, $1050, or per person, only two people per trip, $250 per person.
Unless something really crazy comes up, this will be the last report of the season. Time to take some walks, read some books, drink some scotch, and relax for six months. Thanks to all for a great season, stay healthy and safe and we will see you in May.
Just a general fish report.
Schoolie tuna still very hot up along the southern edge of the bank, as well as further east. Giants still being taken in Cape Cod Bay, close to Ptown, look for the fleet. Are not 80 boats there like a week ago, but maybe twenty or so. I had one on for thirty minutes, was solo and the fish went under the boat and broke off.
Still catching the occasional blues and stripers. Spread around, but the Race Pt. area and down the backside.
After about five days of crazy northeast winds and rain, it finally stopped. Boats back out on the water, a lot of giant bluefin tuna around. Not many bass nor blues, but haven’t really been looking yet after the weather, focused on tuna yesterday. No joy for us but did see 5-6 Giants caught.
Big winds, not a lot of fishing. Water temps dropped to 55, from 67, blues disappeared, bass still sparse. This week predicted to be more crazy winds and rain and temps, can’t predict what’s going to happen. I would just stay the course and come up and fish, beach or boat. Tuna was hot before the winds, WILL be hotter after the winds.
Had some more really big blues today, solid 15 pounders, in front of the ranger station and down by the mission bell, on the boat. Saw about four vehicles down by the mission bell on the beach, guessing the blues are hitting the beach their in the early mornings.
