It was an action-packed week here at Get Tight Sport Fishing. We put the hours on the water and it showed! I split up this week fishing between Cape Cod and Boston Harbor. The weather has been a major dampener this week. The fact is, it's tough to fish in 20-30mph winds, and 40+ is just too unsafe to get out. So, we picked our shots and only fished 5 out of the last 7 days. Cape Cod is holding good numbers of tasty black seabass and these guys have been everywhere. We even had some big tautog while seabass fishing. Hogy 100gram sandeel jigs, tipped with fresh vineyard sound squid have been doing the damage. This is a fun way to fish over the conventional high low bait rig. The beginning of the week saw most of our striped bass come from high current structure areas. Focusing on rip lines has been key. The bass seemed to grow as the week went on. We now have fish in the mid to high 30-inch range moving into Cape waters.
Boston harbor is awash in 15-25 inch schoolies feeding heavily on the surface. They have been keyed in on small bait. The new 1oz hogy protail in bone seems to trigger instant bites. Both Tomo's tackle and Monahan's Marine are stocking these great new baits. The flounder fishing is the best I have seen in years with 4 man limits in under 3 hours yesterday. Some of these have been brusers! The trick has been to anchor on the outgoing tide and chum heavily. I find Fishing Finatics in Everett has not only the freshest bait around but his chum logs have been my weapon of choice! Don't be cheap; if your going to do it right, you need 2-3 chum logs and a flat of sea worms. The crabs and skates have been brutal, but once the black backs move in it's been lock and load!
So we got options!
