    The tuna bite has been very good according to Christian at Falmouth Bait and Tackle. He was heading out on Saturday morning to put a recreational tuna in the boat until the forecast for gusty winds were beating up boats making the trip around Monomoy. Most of their customers opted for tautog fishing in western Buzzards Bay and up around the West Falmouth rockpiles. A crew made up of his part time staff fished Buzzards Bay on Friday where fishing was so good they only kept fish in the 5- to 6-pound class for their limits. Christian said this falls tog fishing has been outstanding and it's probably going to carry on well up into Thanksgiving.

    Christian at Falmouth Bait & Tackle told me that the bluefin bite around Cape Cod is still pretty reliable. A buddy of his was fishing around the Regal Sword on Friday (1025) and hooked five hefty school bluefin on spinning gear, two of which made it to the boat. Christian said that there is still some swordfish action to be had in the eastern canyons, perhaps the last hoorah of what was a great season for swords in New England.

    Christian at Falmouth Bait & Tackle said that while the canyon conditions were generally not conducive to fishing last week, the bluefin bite around the Cape has more than made up for it. The days leading up to the last storm featured some absolutely savage topwater action, with some boats tallying as many as seven fish per trip. On other days, the tuna wanted trolled baits, giving the upper hand to those ready with some rigged ballyhoo to pull behind the boat. This goes to show that regardless of your preference in tactics, you need to show up prepared for whatever the fish may want. Thankfully, the bait and fish have stuck around after the storm. Recreational and giant-class tuna were reported off of Nauset and east of Chatham over the weekend.

    Christian at Falmouth Bait & Tackle reports that there was plenty of action for shark fishermen this week, but it was almost all in the form of blue sharks. Recreational-class bluefin were found in decent numbers east of Chatham, off Nauset, and on the southwest corner and Middle Bank of Stellwagen. A few customers went to the canyons over the weekend, but nobody had called in a report when we spoke.
