Cape Cod Bay Fishing Report - Early June 2015

Contributed by: Cape Cod Sportfishing on the Janine B

The water temperature continues to hover around 52 degrees - creating challenging fishing conditions along with winds blowing 20-30 mph.  The breakdown: 
Striped Bass - fishing for keepers is more difficult than usual.  There are numerous fish under 28 inches boding well for the future, but even the charter boats are having difficulty getting their full limit of legal fish.

The hot spot has been Barnstable Harbor, with fish 40 inches and up taking 

both live and chunk mackerel. The game is to jig for mackerel around the  Barnstable Bell, and then run inside and fish.  Billingsgate Shoal has been producing mostly small fish, and Provincetown has run hot and cold. 

Bluefish - Are you kidding?  The water is so cold, we have only hear of one being caught by the Bay Charter Fleet- must have been lost. 
Tuna - Not a sign yet. 
Mackerel - They are everywhere - off the previously mentioned Barnstable Bell, out by the #1 buoy off Sesuit Harbor in Dennis, Provincetown, you name it.  Just drop your mackerel rigs to the bottom, jig all the way up the water column, and have fun. Kids will love it!
