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.
This fish was caught using top water on light tackle. The big fish are around giving anglers a great chance at catching a striped bass of a life time. My calendar is booking up fast so book your Cape Cod charter fishing adventure now!
In July and August we are fishing many different methods, from casting eels at night to chunking off Gay Head. We trailer our boat so we can bring the trophy striped bass fishing right to you.
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.

Cape cod charter fishing at it’s best! Fishing for striped bass with Hairball charters.
Been fishing with Capt. Eric for 14 years, once or twice a year, and he has never failed bringing us back with a cooler full of fish!
Went out by Provincetown using top water lures and the fish went nuts! 6 fish 45″ or larger!
We’ve been bottom jigging, chunking, live was, and now top water, and they were all action packed!!
Nobody better than Capt. Eric and Hairball Charters!!
Great day of fishing with the Rockwood Inc annual trip. We spent the day charter fishing with Hairball Charters out of Falmouth, Ma on Cape Cod for Stripe bass. After stripers we went for Black Sea Bass. The best part of the trip was not having to filet the fish, Eric had them ready for the grill. Great day! Can’t wait for next year.
Just wanted to say thanks again for a great trip. Also want to give Ryan a big shout out. Awesome job. You’ll be hearing from us in the future for another great fishing trip.
Thanks, Tim and Leanne Hogan
Striper Trips – May 18th & 19th
Two fantastic days of Cape Cod Striped Bass charter fishing. Started the 5/18 trip in the Vineyard Sound using light tackle in the rips and finished catching bigger fish on the edges in 38′. The fish were feeding on squid and juvenile scup. Today’s trip we moved north to Cape Cod Bay catching fish in swimmer plugs, Hogy soft baits and hairball jigs. All fish both days were ranging from keeper size to 45in. We will be back out tomorrow fishing Falmouth.
