Goose Hummock

January 21, 2019:
According to Capt. Chris Nashville of the Goose Hummock Shop, some people have been braving the weather and searching for ice on the Cape. After checking a lot of the major ponds on the mid and upper Cape nothing looked safe that he could find. Some of the smaller bass ponds have been rumored to have 3 inches of ice, but the best advice is to be very cautious until we get some more solid cold to come through. Lots of the ponds had just a bit of ice on the edges and enough to deter from fishing, but there is still some open enough water to wet a line. Danny got into some fish last week with a few rainbows on spoons, and shiners on the bottom have been producing some nice browns. Hopefully the cold settles in so we can hopefully have a Cape ice season this winter (however long that could be.)

    Up on the Cape, Capt. Chris Nashville of the Goose Hummock Shop reports that things remain rather unchanged from the past few weeks with a lot of anglers staying indoors by the fire staying warm. Those getting out to the ponds are doing well on bait. The guys from the shop are hitting the ponds hard this week so hopefully they'll find some good action for next week's report!

    From Capt. Chris Nashville at the Goose Hummock Shop we got word this week that browns and bows have been the main attraction of late on the Cape. Bait is the top-producer, and you can't go wrong with a shiner on the bottom for some big browns this time of year. Jerkbaits worked very slowly have also been effective if you're trying to keep moving in the cold weather.

    Danny and Captain Rich from the Goose Hummock Shop have been out early mornings and evenings after sundown to make offerings to the brown trout that are stocked in ponds inside of Nickerson State Park. Simeon said they were planning on being at most of the larger boat and tackle shows this winter so look them up and take advantage of show prices on numerous items.

    Capt. Chris Nashville from the Goose Hummock Shop passed along word that bass and trout remain your best bet on the Cape with some solid catches of all three being made. He and Danny got into a good bite over the weekend at Nickerson State Park, always a good bet in the winter months!
