Cape Cod Fishing Report 
for the weekend of July 31st
with Capt. Eric Stewart. 
Top Water Bass Action with Team Goose
Stripers Your Way 
by Capt. Bobby Rice 
of Reel Deal Fishing Charters
   The striped bass fishing stays strong off the outer Cape heading into July as multiple opportunities arise for topwater casting, drifting live bait and vertically jigging. Keep watch for diving birds and surface disruptions which surely indicate the time has arrived to send a plug into the blitz. The Gibbs Needlefish in yellow and black/purple offer consistent results, however for stripers feeding on mackerel you may want to try something bigger such as the Strategic Angler lures which have been providing exceptional success under these conditions. While known for tuna fishing, these lures with their unique intricate graphic design certainly catch the attention of the larger striped bass in the school. Be sure to use heavier line to avoid breaking off this higher end tackle.
   When the topwater scene quiets, move on to drifting live bait (if available) and vertically jigging. The Daddy Mac elite series in Sand Eel Green, Squid and Herring regularly all produce results depending on the conditions when fish are staying closer to the bottom.
   If you decide to point your compass North and head to the outer Cape, be advised that the Pamet Harbor boat launch is under heavy use during the commercial fishing days (Monday/Thursday) and trailer parking spaces typically fill up before 3:00am. If using this departure location, please stay considerate of other boaters who are trying to launch and don't sleep on your boat at the dock. The pressure on the fish during these days may require more running around, but a little extra effort generally has been rewarded.
   Enjoy the amazing fishing this dynamic area has to offer and see you on the water!
Catching a Unicorn
   Last week we headed out of Harwich on “Trashy Thoughts”, owned by Shawn Delude, and headed to Hydro for the Falmouth Grand Prix Tournament. The ride out was awesome with light winds and calm seas.

Not just about the tuna...
There's are loads of
Stripers On Their Way!

With all the talk about the tuna and the "Bite of the Decade", the inshore fishing has lost some of the limelight. We're here to tell you, that just ain't so! There are tons of bass making their way around Monomoy, finally, and headed to the east side. This could be the Chatham Bite we've been waiting on. 
Time to get your keeper. 
Please bear with us as we undergo some construction on our site.

CONTEST
Brewster decided to help Team Goose clean the catch last night. Click on the image above and post a caption for the photo in the comments, then we will choose a winner (by super secret ballot) who will receive a $10 Goose Hummock Gift Card.
With all the talk of the action going on offshore, let's not forget about the freshwater fishing on Cape Cod. These pix in from DJ Eno of his 6.8# (they weighed it) beauty of a bass caught on a shiner in Gull Pond from a kayak. Lots of fun to be had out there guys. Get on'em!
