Sea bass fishing out of Falmouth Harbor is unbelievable! We’re catching Mendelssohn fish in the 18 inch range. We use ultralight tackle to catch theses delicious fish.

We will catch sea bass throughout the whole summer. I will filet them for you so you can enjoy a fantastic meal after a great day charter fishing on Cape Cod.

With the weather so calm these boys traveled down for their second striped bass charter. All morning we casted top water, watching these bass destroy these anglers baits. The total amount caught was around 30 fish with one over 44 inches long.

We’re now headed back out on a family fishing trip for giant sea bass this afternoon. The sea bass bite has been epic this summer. This fall should be great for tutoug, given that people do not want to travel as far on my Falmouth charter fishing boat.

Nighttime Trophy Striped Bass Fishing

Nighttime striper fishing with live eels can be amazing. It was an incredible moonlit night evening with light winds and perfect conditions for pitching live eels on light tackle. The night started slow without any bass showing on the depth finder. With a little persistence it wasn’t too long before the words “I’m on” echoed through the night air and the unforgettable sound of the singing drag. The bite lasted for two hours with 13 fish caught. This picture is the largest striped bass caught that night weighing around 30 pounds. What an enjoyable charter with great people.

They’re one of the best eating fish in the world. I will fillet all your catch meticulously for you, sending you home with a big bag of fish. Come join us out of Falmouth, Massachusetts to fish Vineyard Sound and beyond.

Stripers and black seabass are a great way to bring friends and family together. After a great day of sport fishing it is so rewarding putting your catch on the grill for a fantastic seafood dinner.

These anglers travelled down from the Worcester area. They were so excited to bring their catch back and put some on their smoker, seeing that he is the owner of a barbecue restaurant. Great job guys!

The weather has been a real battle this spring but we have managed some great striped bass fishing. In this picture the angler was using top water plugs catching stripers from 30 to 43 inches. The warm weather has finally arrived putting us in a transition stage so fishing has fluctuated from lots of trophy striped bass to great action were plenty of 26 to 34 inch fish. I am excited and ready for the Chesapeake Bay stripers to arrive as the waters warm up on the south side of Falmouth area. These trophy striped bass should be in the 40 inch range, making July and August a great time to book a Cape Cod fishing charter. We have been leaving out of Falmouth Harbor and Cape Cod Bay. Hairball Charters services all of southern Massachusetts.

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.
