The Traveling Angler to Cape Cod for 2019-2020
Cape Cod is world renowned for its beaches and blue water. Sport Fishers seeking to vacation here have the unique opportunity to take advantage of the many species of game fish that call this place home. The Traveling Angler is the perfect resource to check out various hotels, motels, resorts, cottage rentals, and Bed & Breakfasts. Utilizing these we can connect you to virtually any type of fishing stay package.
Our fishing season runs from May thru October. It always starts when the bait fish arrive from their migration up the Atlantic Seaboard. These smaller fish are chased by the larger trophy sized game species that anglers from around the world get excited on. These travelers have their pick with different types adventures such as; deep sea, shallow water flat’s boats, kayaking, surf casting, and even biking the canal or rail trail.
Once you've been here, anglers usually come back to Cape Cod year after year as the hospitality is fantastic. The geography of "The Giant Sand Bar" can be defined by 3 distinct sides or areas to fish on this peninsula.
The First region for fishers to explore is the south side. And also referred to as Nantucket Sound. Capt. John Curry's explains, "In the springtime the annual runs of; Squid, Herring, Mackeral, Pogies, & Anchovy arrive to these waters. The event is activated by the warmer temperature, and the phytoplankton thrives with The Cape's clean water. The biosphere turns on." "As winter loosens it's cold grip on our waters the first arrivals are our River Herring followed by a variety of baitfish like silversides, Grass Shrimp and more pods of Squid. Our Striped Bass, Bluefish and Fluke are right in their heals and hungry from their migration north. The "south side" as we call it, is Vineyard, Nantucket sounds and Buzzards Bay and the early season fishing is incredible. Around July 4th our fish develop a summer pattern and many stripers enter Cape Cod Bay with a variety of species on all sides of the Cape throughout the season." John can trailer his charter boat to most harbors on Cape Cod.
Capt. Marc Costa , out of Rock Harbor explains, "On the heels of the smaller fish are the larger fish that feed on them and view them as prey. The herring swim right up from the ocean into the estuaries and usually thru a man made fish ladder into a fresh water pond to spawn. There are over 30 herring runs within the 14 towns on Cape Cod. Most of them have great access with walking trails and bike paths." "All summer long we fish the bay side for Stripers and Blue fish, and other species holding in the area.". Marc's boat is called The Columbia and fantastic for groups up to 6 people. Marc's main focus is Cape Cod Bay.
Capt. Tony Biski marks his calendar each season and feels that "as the temperature of the water makes its way to 50 to 55 degrees, the Stripers are usually here in big numbers, this can occur during April and/or the beginning of May." Tony is a sound fly caster and light tackle enthuasist.
Pro Fly Fishing Guide, Michael J. Mullaney after talking with many seasoned sport fisherman, clarifies "The Striped Bass land in May. Bluefish in June. Followed by Bluefin Tuna, & Seabass later in the month. In July Atlantic Marlin & the pelagic show up, and a wide array of sharks. The fall blitz brings the season to a close with the water exploding, as all these runs of fish are feeding heavy for their migration back down the Coast. Including the False Albacore and Bonito, both sought-after game fish." Michael loves to kayak fish.
The Second area to investigate is the north side called Cape Cod Bay. And if you choose to fish close to the beach, there is a series of very shallow water called the flats. Michael has observed over the years that “the Stripers move in and out of these flats with the tide making for fantastic site fishing action.” The Bay lies between Plymouth on the mainland and Province-town on the tip of the peninsula. (Approximately 26 miles between the mainland and the tip). The Bay is famous for all sorts of deep sea fishing.
The Third zone that anglers scout out and fish is the eastern facing beaches or Atlantic Ocean. Capt. Mort Terry gets excited "Just miles off shore on many days we encounter; whales, tuna, and the pelagic species that come close, because the bait always like to be here." Mort also offer whale watching trips in this region when then timing is right.
Michael also wanted to let folks know to, "not forget that we have over 50 great ponds that hold; trout, bass, perch, pickerel, and more!"
