Steeped in fishing heritage, Cape Cod has one of the most famous striped bass runs in the world.
A classic fishing destination, Cape Cod will not disappoint fly or spin anglers alike. Cape Cod is perhaps best known for its iconic striped bass run and fishing culture. While most commercial fishing has died down off Cape Cod, there is almost no harbor that doesn’t have a sportfishing charter boat based out of it. An angler will not be short of fishing options here. One of the more popular things to do is to stay relatively close to shore and fish for striped bass, bluefish, and false albacore. While a strict limit has been imposed on stripers in the past few years, the false albacore make great eating and can be filleted right then and there on the boat. If that doesn’t suit you, deep sea boats will take you miles out to chase migrating tuna and billfish.
Prime time fishing here is from spring to fall. During the warmest summer months, even blue marlin and Mahi-mahi have been known to show up in Cape Cod’s waters. Cape Cod has an extremely busy summer tourist season, so if you’re planning a vacation it is best to book a trip well in advance. However, some of the best striper fishing starts in the early fall months. If you’re a hardcore angler, this is the time to book your Cape Cod fishing trip.
