Cape Cod - 2005/2006

2005 - A Great Fishing Season
2005 was a fantastic year. We caught tons of stripers and blues early in the season on Tom Shoal at Marthas Vineyard and Bearse Shoal at Monomoy. Most were released for the future. The Maverick won the Allen Harbor 4th of July tournament for the second straight year. The most productive mid to late season action was at Nantucket (Sankaty), Monomoy (High Bank), Chatham (Inlet) and Nauset. The school/medium bluefin tuna bite was the best I have seen in years. We pursued this great gamefish in August and September on Crab Ledge, the "BC" buoy and the Regal Sword. We had many 6-8 hour charters with 10-15 plus tuna up to 90# on stand-up 30's and 50's. The charter was allowed to keep one to three fish based on the Regs at the time of the trip. In October we began Giant Bluefin Tuna fishing and had three beauties in three straight days. 700# plus, 600# plus, and 550#. One of our 2004 catches, 540#, was featured in the On The Water magazine TV show on NESN. The 550# catch in 2005 will be shown on the Offshore magazine TV show featuring Allen Harbor this winter.
Love fishing the Cape.
