Goose Hummock

October 21, 2019:
The crew from the Goose Hummock Shop told me that Phil and company made the long run to Hydrographer for a last crack at some canyon tuna. They hadn't gotten a call-in from Phil just yet, but they expect that he was able to put a couple on the deck. All around the Cape, bluefin have been taking a variety of offerings with gusto, with a particularly hot bite of recreational-class fish off of Nauset over the weekend.

    The crew from the Goose Hummock Shop told me that those with big enough boats, and the guts to fish storm seas, hooked some giant bluefin on live baits in Cape Cod Bay. The Bay wasn't calm by any stretch of the imagination, but it was far better than the ocean side during the peak of the storm. Everyone is itching to get back at it as the seas are now returning to a reasonable state.

    There are larger tuna in Cape Cod Bay and at Stellwagen with more recreational-class fish being found out east according to the crew from the Goose Hummock Shop in Orleans. Both live bait and trolling rigged ballyhoo is producing on bluefin. No word from the canyons as the past week's weather—and likely that of the next few days—is preventing most form making the run.

    The crew from the Goose Hummock Shop reports that smorgasbord of forage species helped fuel some great bluefin action this week. Herring, mackerel, peanuts, butterfish, and half beaks were all on Charlie's menu this week, making for some great live bait and topwater fishing. Many customers were simply running until they found birds andor whales, blind casting, and hooking tuna. For those that preferred live bait fishing, getting out early to Sabiki some herring often equated to a bluefin on the deck a few hours later. The fall run seems to be in full swing around Cape Cod.

    The crew from the Goose Hummock Shop reports that more manageable winds allowed more boats to get out and chase local bluefin. There are reportedly good numbers of 60-inch bluefin just 5-10 miles east of Nauset. Drifting live bait has been the ticket, with the tuna showing a marked preference for herring over mackerel in recent days. Shark action is also still going strong, with Phil and company getting into some porbeagles around the Golf Balls last week.
