Goose Hummock

November 20, 2017:
Simeon of the Goose Hummock Shop said there were a few guys still catching schoolies and these appear to be fish that might spend the winter. The tuna guys are anxiously awaiting the short opening of the giant tuna season on December first and reports are good for a generous body of fish still feeding east of Chatham.

    The word from Simeon at the Goose Hummock Shop was of a few guys still chasing schoolies and scoring in the rivers and estuaries on the bay and ocean side. These fish are averaging from 12 to 24 inches. The tuna beat goes on with a good bite of recreational keepers and giants which have to be released. The shop has checked-in some monster deer this week with a local 8-point buck out of Harwich that dressed out at 202 pounds, and a Maine deer that was brought in to verify its dressed weight which was 236 pounds. That monster was a 6 by 4 10-pointer and they don't get that much bigger than that!

    The word from Simeon of the Goose Hummock Shop was a continuation of small bass filtering through the waters from the Race around to Chatham and westward as fish continue to trickle down from Plymouth and Boston. There is still tuna on the Sword and Crab Ledge with reports of more tuna on Stellwagen Bank. Those locations are loaded with mackerel and sand eels.

    Chris from the Goose Hummock Shop said there have been numerous reports of blitzing schoolies in many locations and some keeper bass outside of Chatham and on the rips at Monomoy. There was even some great surface action in the area of the Sword with tuna from 30 pounds to giants taking to the air while busting bait. Chris also had some success during the archery season and will be enjoying some tenderloins with friends over the weekend.

    Sam from the Goose Hummock Shop said there were quite a few giants caught and released around the Regal Sword wreck this week and numerous fish under 72 inches that can be taken by recreational anglers. There are lots of small bass making their way from the Race all the way down the ocean side to Chatham where some larger specimens are being reported. With the fall trout stocking about completed the freshwater fishing in local waters is very good with reports of some holdover trout and some largemouth putting on the fall feed.
