Yes, folks, that is the report for this week. Although we are not running charters yet, the boats splashes on the 30 th, and we start with Bluefin Tuna charters in early June and by Father’s Day we will be mixing bass and tuna trips equally depending upon timing and height of the tide that particular day. Most of my peers having operations in Cape Cod Bay are doing well on decent sized stripers and recently good sized bass are now starting to come out of Nantucket Sound.
Bluefin Tuna are reported being seen offshore and moving into the Stellwagon Bank area. Some boats are now poking around to the East of Chatham, so you will be getting reports of a real positive nature shortly. The bait and whales are there, so with just a little effort we should see some really great early season Bluefin action. The sizes of the fish this year are going to be 3-4 inches larger than last year, so I expect to see some large medium bluefin caught on the troll gear this June. If you are wanting to try your skills on one of these great challenges in the fishing world, give us a call or an email and we will try to get you on one or two of them.
I have been lax with my T shirts lately. Many of you may not know that we give out a nicely embroidered Capeshores Charters T shirt with a Striped Bass over the left breast, to every 15th customer who fills out the customer contact/feedback form on the website.
Here is a link to the shirt images:

Mark Newcomb of Norwood MA, Chris Sprague-Gould of West Brockport NY, Kingsley Greenland of Norfolk MA, Brian Shepley of Raynham MA, Michael Menapace of Holliston MA, Gavin Scotti of Greenwich CT, Mark Helm of Edmond OK, and Bill Dyer of Weymouth, MA.
If you are one of these folks, please send me an email with your preferred size and the mailing address, and Ill send out your shirt. Not all sizes and colors are available, but I will do the best I can.
Thanks very much for all the support and interest,
Capt. Bruce & F/V “Marilyn S”
