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. The red hot Buzzards Bay bite has slowed significantly and has been replaced with the reward of
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
There’s only one word that comes to mind for this year’s albie fishing, and that is phenomenal. Why put in words what a video will sum up perfectly! Music credit: Home Alone by Ansel Elgort (warning, some explicit language) After a fishing guide event on the cape we got some of the vendors out along
The ablies are in and they are in in big numbers. Some days it takes some running around to find the bigger pods, but every trip we’ve found a good number of fish and in many cases had the pods to ourselves for hours! In 4 days we ended up with 3 false albacore over
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 we spent half the week trailering the boat from the Merrimack River to Boston Harbor to the lower Cape and Martha’s Vineyard. The fishing has really slowed down over the past week and in some cases took live bait to get moving. Northshore – Merrimack River, Plum Island, Joppa Flats, etc There has
The Buzzards Bay bite is still absolutely on fire. The average size of the striped bass have gone from small 20″ fish to averaging between 24-28″ in size. Every one of the normal spots we went to held fish that even if no bird activity would have a huge number of fish underneath it. Watching
