Will Mother Nature turn down the fan already! It’s been windy windy for many of the days leading to cancelled or rescheduled trips, and even the “flat calm” days have turned sporty but in some cases worth it.

Private Charter too expensive? Join our Charter Cost Sharing mailing list and find others to split the costs.
At Fly Guy Fish Guides, we got into guiding to give more opportunities to anglers to get out there on fly and light tackle. At the same time we understand the costs for a private charter can be prohibitively expensive, and will limit access for many people – especially those new to the sport or
Welcome back Striped Bass! We’ve been waiting for so long! The good news is the schoolies came in early, and we were catching good numbers of 22-27″ fish on both light tackle and fly as early as April 20th. The bad news is the cold and wind since then has really stalled out the larger

Told you we would find the bonito! We got some snotty days that were forecasted for 7 knots and turned into 20 knots and some super flat calm days. We finally found the bonito and had a blast catching them including doubling up in the middle of a pack of boats with no action between
With the reports of bonito and king mackerel in, we had to go see if we could get in on the action. Regretfully with those reports also came a forecast of 10 days of straight thunderstorms. We decided to change it and make the trip anyways and abort at the ramp if we saw lightning.
Cocktail blues are the name of the game right now with schoolies and black sea bass plentiful as well. On one trip we counted 60+ surface blitzes of cocktail blues from Falmouth to Hyannisport and every rip we stopped at along the way had a mix of blues and Black Sea Bass. Running around the
This week was a mixed bag of fishing with everything from schoolies to the highlight of one of the trips with a 46″ Striped bass weighing in at 35lbs. What we did find was the early morning bite started to fizzle out and many of the fish we’ve caught have come later in the day
