New England - Cape Cod and the Islands Fishing Reports

New England Video Fishing Forecast September 28, 2023

Surf Fishing Heats Up Surfcasting reports began to improve as Tropical Storm Ophelia and her persistent northeast winds churned the seas. Shown above is Andrew, a young superstar surfcaster from Plum Island with a 45-inch striper he landed during the storm’s approach. The northeast winds haven’t been great for all fisheries though, albie fishing across much of the region has fallen quiet in the wake of the storm, one bright spot has been eastern Buzzards Bay including the Cape Cod Canal where albie chasers continue to hook little tunny. Those looking for blackfish in Massachusetts and Rhode Island waters are reporting a noticeable uptick in action… it took a while, but the fall run has begun!
