Fishing Reports

October 9

Fishing around the waters of Falmouth in the fall will produce a number of species. The water temperature is still pretty worm and False Albacore are have hung around since late August. The most recent reports are that there have been albies caught from in front of Falmouth harbor to down to green pond and also along the Elizabeths. One customer said he got into them pretty good in Buzzards Bay right outside of Woods Hole about a week ago so they may have moved into that area as well. Hogy epoxy jigs with 4 ft, 15 lb fluorocarbon leader is still the way to go but albie snax have been working as well.


Tautog fishing is in full swing around this side of the cape. Reports of keeper fish have been reported along the Elizabeths islands in about 20 feet of water. Tog like to hunt in rocky structure so you can catch them off of Nobska, in woods hole, along the Elizabeth's and also in Buzzards Bay. Green crabs are the primary bait for blackfish and you can use a Jig or a Rig to catch them.


Striper fishing has been a little slow this fall. There have been fish caught along the Elizabeth islands in the rocks with either eels or a bone colored plugs. Guys have also been dropping eels down in Woods hole and catching slot and over slot fish there as well.
