Trip Summary

Cape Cod: With the hoards of boats descending on Buzzards Bay for Black Seabass, I decided to focus on Vineyard and Nantucket sound this week. Most of the rips are holding solid striper action! These fish are still larger schoolies 20-27 inches. The guys live-lining scup are picking up low 30-inch keepers. I prefer to have fun with the schoolies on light tackle soft plastics and top water plugs. Pink and white colors seem to be producing the best. Almost all the wrecks, shoals, and rock piles are holding bruiser black seabass. It's been the best seabass fishing I have seen in years! We have seen huge numbers of large males and have bumped up our presentations to specifically target them. The 9-inch Hogy pro tail eel in 5oz has been the weapon of choice! Both pink and sand eel are crushing it! The most promising part of the week was the appearance of 5-8lb bluefish on the south side. I checked several known bluefish haunts and all were holding fish on certain portions of the tide. These guys are reacting well to rebel jumping minnows and pink epoxy jigs. Boston Harbor: The flounder bite is off the charts. Big numbers and larger fish up to 18 inches have invaded the harbor. The outgoing tide is key, so time your outings around it and chum, chum, chum. Huge numbers of schoolies are running rampant over most of the inner harbor. Look for the birds and small bait to find them. Consider using single hook soft plastics and inline hooks on your plugs. Taking care of these fish is of the utmost importance. These fish are the future 50-pounders of the fishery! Some better striped bass are being caught very inconcistantly. Large top water plugs and live macks have been the choice when targeting keeper line siders. If you put in your time you will find them! The bulk of the larger fish are still on the move south of the state line. They seem to be delayed due to the large amounts of bunker down south. We will have huge tides on the 5th and 6th of June. These tides should provide a nice transport of fish north! Tight Lines! Captain Brian Coombs Get Tight Sport Fishing

Well it's been a crazy 2 weeks. Things have blown wide open on almost all things fishing! Boston: We have seen several new waves of fish in the area. Huge numbers of aggressive 20-25 inch schoolie bass. Can be found almost every morning feeding happily, on the surface just about any place in the harbor. These fish have been hitting Both topwater and soft plastic lures and are great fun on fly. But the big news is the push of 30 to upper 40 inch fish that have just arrived. These fish are responding very well to both live and artificial baits. Some mornings they can be found feeding heavily on top in open water, other days they have been shallow on structure. All things considered its these fish are just the shot in the arm Boston needed! Cape Cod: Well almost all species are chewing heavily. Black seabass has been the best I have seen in years. We have imposed a 20 inch , male only minimum on the boat. This keeps both breeding stock in the water as well as making for better table fair. We have even had a good number of keeper fluke and tautog in the mix. The striped bass fishing around the islands is excellent! Though not huge in size these 20-30 inch that have been holding in the rips are a blast on fly! If you want larger quarry then Cape Cod bay is the place to be. The large amounts of sea herring has been fueling surface feeds though out the cc bay area. Large white hogys and top water plugs have been working well here. So there is a lot to be thankful for right now. Its time to get out and fish! Captain Brian Coombs Get Tight Sport Fishing

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! Tight Lines. Captain Brian Coombs
