Cape Cod and Islands Fishing Report –May 20th – May 26th 2018

No comments

The Buzzards Bay bite has been absolutely phenomenal this week. You can pretty much pick a species and chances are you’ll find a school ready and willing to take a bite on every cast. We started out coming across a massive surface blitz of schoolie stripers that caught us 70+ fish within an hour including a couple fish in the low 30″ range. After getting our fill of striped bass we moved onto some of the ledges further out to see if we could find some black sea bass. The first couple minutes got us a couple black sea bass which then slowed down considerably. Just to the south of us we noticed a massive flock of birds working and couldn’t pass up seeing what was out there. Every cast for over an hour on either fly or light tackle yielded a mixed bag of either black sea bass, stripers, bluefish, and even a fluke and some sea robins! We even managed a 22″ black sea bass on the fly!

Best bets on fly tackle were chartreuse and white deceivers with green flash and olive and white hollow fleyes. On light tackle we were doing really well on Hogy Squinnows in bone and olive. Pink Spro bucktails were also producing for the really deep fish.
