Cape Cod Fishing Charters – 2017 is Off to a Great Start!

This entry was posted in Fishing Trips on by .

After a really slow start to the summer months we finally had a beautiful fishing day off of Falmouth Massachusetts on Hairball Charters. The day started out going out to “the Rock” to catch Black Sea Bass and we were not disappointed. There were so many of these great tasting fish that as soon as we dropped 3 lined in we had 3 fish! We knew for sure this was going to be a “meat trip” for our anglers.

Next up we were bottom fishing for Stripers and we lucked into a Bluefish. Our angler loves his Bluefish more than any other fish. He says that if Bluefish is eaten on the same day caught you can’t eat a better fish. We might have to agree with him on that.


Last but not least the Stripers were plentiful between Falmouth and Cape Cod. We caught our limit as usual. At this time of the year (in early June 2017) the Stripers run a little smaller than they do later in the summer.


With a cooler full of fish we had to go home and cook them up. We started out with frying the Bluefish on this night. The rest of the fish will be eaten over the next couple of weeks. As a tip for freezing your fish we suggest that you wash the fish in cold ice water with sea salt. This will help “tighten up the meat” for freezing and makes it taste great when you are ready to serve it next week or next month.
