April 2012 Daily Fishing Reports

Monday, April 30: Barnstable Harbor

Solid Report

Received some good news again about Barnstable; plenty of bass, a number into the 30-inch class, taking flies with abandon. Bruce Miller also said there are mackerel outside at the bell and folks are beginning to liveline them with success.
Sunday, April 29: Cape - All Over

Fish Definitely Filling In

Little doubt that stripers have spread throughout most of the Cape waters. The Sandwich creeks and Barnstable Harbor have a good mix of schoolies and the occasional 30-inch fish. Buzzards Bay, both Cape and off-Cape sides, have plenty of fish, with West Falmouth, Pocasset, Monument Beach, and Wareham rivers all holding bass. Southside, plenty of weed along shoreline from Falmouth to Hyannis, but squid boats are around and blues should be chopping in bigger numbers this week.
Saturday, April 28: Cotuit

Proof in the Photo

Bob Lewis, president of the Osterville Anglers' Club, sent me a photo of a nice fish that I am going to presume he caught up in the Three Bays area of Cotuit, as area that he knows very well. Bob is really into the fly rod, but I know that he also loves his Smack-it poppers.
Friday, April 27: Southside Cape

Mixed Bag

As is typical when the word gets out that fishing is good at a certain spot, Joe Marcus said there were more folks in Cotuit, but fewer fish. They showed up on the tide and it was a pick here and there. Buzzards Bay continues to fish very well, with plenty of schoolies and bass into the low 30-inch class. Soft plastics are working very well and flyrodders are finding success with herring patterns.
Thursday, April 26: Cotuit

Slappin' Tails

Received a call from Joe Marcus this morning telling me he had just enjoyed an hour of slapping tails around Cross St. in Cotuit. Bass and small blues were very active and willing to eat a variety of offerings. Interesting part was that an angler who was fishing next to Joe with basically the same offerings couldn't entice a single bite. Perhaps a matter of leader choice; wonder if wire was the culprit?
Wednesday, April 3: Montauk

A Fine Finale

Day three with Gerry Fine once included a castaway, Warren Marshall, and the fishing and weather remained first class. We had albies crashing bait from when we left the harbor to when we stopped on the way back in at Shagwong and there were plenty of schools of bass mixed in to make it magic on the water again. Gerry even managed to set a record for a hook up on the Katie G as he had an albie on the line that went well into the backing, at which point a wire line charter boat went across his line and had the Tibor really whining. We gave chase and Gerry did a great job of cranking like crazy, but ultimately we weren't able to land the 40-footer and ended up sacrificing half a fly line. As they say, just another day in Montauk.
