It’s no secret that for the last couple of weeks we’ve been traveling around the tip of the cape, past our three lighthouses; Long Point, Wood End, and finally Race Point, to find bluefish. And it’s an even further ride to Nauset inlet to catch Stripers. But fishing is a lot like the local weather forecasts, a crap shoot. I felt right at home with today’s bunch of New Jersey brethren, the two father John’s and sons Owen, James, Gabe and for good luck, recovering (from a severe knee injury) Charles. The weather report was all wrong and with a stiff North West wind we headed to the Cottages, primarily to escape the wind and hopefully find a school or two of Bluefish. Surprise! Instead, we ran into a nice slug of “just under” Stripers. We had a blast! Later, with the help of a timely radio call pinpointing a school of Bluefish, Joe steamed the Nauset over to a spot a mile outside of the Pamet Harbor, where we had some nice Bluefish action. Before long the trip was over and it was time to head to the barn. Stripers in the bay? What! Bluefish 5 minutes from the harbor? Crazy! And once again the famous fishing adage that Capt Joe loves to quote, becomes the moral of today’s story. You never know what you’ll catch when you go fishing. Great day with a couple of really nice families, who love to vacation in Truro as much as I do.
