False albacore are slowly but surely showing up in the Upper Cape waters. The best fishing for the speedy funny fish has been from just outside Waquoit Bay east to off Craigville Beach in Hyannis. Woods Hole, Lackey’s Cove and other traditional spots have had fish sporadically. The strong winds of recent days have made for difficult fishing and the huge schools of bait in the the bays and salts ponds has yet to drop out into the Sound. When the winds calm and bait moves, fishing should improve significantly.
Striped bass fishing is still slow. There are school fish and keepers around but it takes time and patience to boat them. For bluefish fans there are large slammers present, with many fish topping 10 pounds.
