Bluefin Tuna show up in the Cape Cod waters early June and feed here all summer long .The sharp drop-off along the Southwest corner of Stellwagen Bank creates upwellings which attract baitfish such as sandeels, mackerel, and herring which attract Bluefin Tuna. A quick 45 minute boat ride puts us on the fishing grounds. Dates are filling up for the 2018 fishing season so book soon . www.FishHighHook.com
The High Hook fishing camp 2018 only has two spots left for this years sessions. For those interested, please sign up soon so you don’t miss out. We will be adding another morning session in June as well. Three days of fishing Duxbury, Plymouth, and Kingston bays for Striped Bass, Flounder, Bluefish. For more information on what the sessions offer, please send an email to [email protected]
Striped Bass show up in Duxbury, Plymouth, and Kingston Bay waters around mid-May. We run 4 hour trips which gives you plenty of fishing time to fill up the cooler. The trip consists of shooting out of the bay to catch live mackerel in the morning and then bring them back inside to target the channels and rips on the moving tides. When the fish show up in Cape Cod waters in the Spring they are hungry and aggressive so you see a lot of the strikes on the surface. No matter your skill level, its fun for all catching the Stripers on light spinning gear. Dates are filling up so book soon to get the day you would like.
High Hook Charters is now booking for the 2018 season. Last year was one of the best yet and we plan to top that this year. Last year early season Haddock and Cod fishing was on fire in May. Striped Bass showed up in Duxbury,Plymouth, and Kingston bays Mid May and stayed around all summer. The P-Town Striper action was insane through June and early July. Giant Bluefin tuna showed up mid-July and we had some good luck on them. Please visit our website for the 2018 trips and rates.
The haddock fishing is red hot right now and should stay that way for another month or so. The edges and bank are loaded with Haddock and big cod. We did 50 keeper Haddock in an hour and half on Sunday morning. Great way to get some meat in the freezer. Book now for trips this month. www.FishHighHook.com
The Bluefin Tuna fishing the last couple weeks has been red hot with a lot of fish in the 60-70 inch range. Some big ones have been mixed in as well. Seems like one out of every 5 or so is a keeper. Great fish for charters as we have been getting multiple hook ups each day. we have landed over 25 in the last two weeks. Get out while the fishing is good.
A few pictures from the last couple weeks.
Yesterday we landed our first Bluefin Tuna of the season measuring 81in and just over 300lbs. It’s nice to see the fish around Stellwagon again. Fish sightings from Peaked Hill Bar to out East of the Bank. Striped Bass trips in the bay all weekend but will be back at it next week.
Although very windy yesterday, we managed to find a couple schools of fish in Duxbury and Plymouth bay. We landed 25 fish or so with a couple keepers mixed in. Bigger Striped Bass are starting to filter into the bays. A picture from yesterday’s trip.
We had a nice trip this morning landing 15 or so Striped Bass over 34in and a few over 40. The fishing is hot right now with big schools of fish showing up on both tides. Best chance at the big ones is live bait, but you can pick your way through the shorts with trolling gear. Here are are couple pictures from today’s trip.
