Saturday, September 26

Captain Marty reports "The Billingsgate Shoals are covered with bait. We worked the area with the rigs and some jigging on the 4 hour trip. We found plenty of bluefish action with a few small bass in the mix. Our anglers were students at Bentley University from Kuwait and experienced international fisherman. Their last excursion was fishing for yellowfin tuna off of South Africa. I was curious to see how they would react to Cape Cod Bay fishing. It didn't take long to get my answer. After landing three bluefish on a single rig, the angler looked up at me on the bridge and, with a big grin, signaled a thumbs up."

"There's been no sign that the bass have started to leave the Bay yet. We are seeing the same fish in the same areas. The bigger bass are being taken to the West off of Sandy Neck. A fair mix of bass and blues are off the Bath House."

"There's still plenty of bait in the Bay. We should have some outstanding fishing within the next few weeks as the fish feed up for their move South. We have trips available through October 11. Don't miss out on what should be a great end of a fantastic season."

Sunday, September 20

Captain Marty reports "The 4 hour trip, rescheduled from Saturday, was a two boat 40th birthday celebration. We left the harbor planning to fish around Sandy Neck or the Bath House. However, reports coming in from both areas indicated that the bite was slowing. We found a nice mix of blues and bass up to 36-inches on the North Edge of the Shoals."

From the guest log:

Awesome trip! ~ Angler from Randolph, MA

Nice ride. Caught a cougar = 36 1/8 ~ Angler from Milton, MA

Saturday, September 19

Captain Marty reports "We had to shuffle the morning 4 hour to Sunday, due to the wind, but the 8 hour sailed with a dropping breeze. We headed up to Provincetown and checked out the area. There were no fish to be found off of the Cottages. However, we found small schools of fish all along the Edge at the Bath House. We caught a mix of bass and blues, taking our largest fish (38-inches) at low water slack. Large schools of fish moved in on the flood tide and we finished out the trip with nine keepers."

These anglers have been fishing with us for decades and this was their first trip aboard Liberty. Their feedback couldn't have been much better:

"Now we know what we've been missing"

"She's a keeper!"

Sunday, September 13

Captain Derrick reports "We fished off the Cottages again on the 8 hour. It was extremely foggy which made the Bay look like a cooking pot. We picked up two bluefish as soon as we set out. They were the last blues we saw all day. The bass weren't exceptionally hungry at first, but once they switched on we couldn't stop catching them. We caught, maybe, five throwbacks all the rest were keepers. We limited out before slack water."

From the guest log:

Great boat. ~ Angler from Taunton, MA

Great Time. Great Boat. ~ Angler from Taunton, MA

Saturday, September 12

Captain Marty reports "The weather wasn't so good, but the fishing was great on both trips. We started out at the Bath House on the 8 hour and found a lot of small keepers. We moved to the Cottages and found the bigger fish, up to 40-inches. We made the run back up to the cottages on the 4 hour. We jigged up our limit of bass, up to 44-inches."

From the guest log:

Great time. Just as good as the first. See ya next year. ~ Angler from Chicopee, MA

You're the best. ~ Angler from Longmeadow, MA

We will bring the rest of the family. Good fun. Thanks. ~ Angler from Chicopee, MA

Friday, September 11

Captain Marty reports "We ran up to the Bath House on the 8 hour. There's a good mix of bass and bluefish; big and small. Action was pretty much non-stop. We jigged up our limit of bass up to 34-inches."

Sunday, September 6

Captain Marty reports "We fished the North Edge of the Shoals on the 4 hour. We jigged up a lot of throwbacks and several keepers up to 36-inches."

Saturday, September 5

Another family day trolling for tuna. We spent the better part of the day on the backside. Not much tuna action, but plenty of whales. Back in the Bay, Captain Doug, out of Rock Harbor, landed an 880 pound tuna with a bluefish on a kite. We found lots of tuna off of Provincetown at sunset. Captain Derrick managed to get a few of them to follow a lure on his spinning rod, but couldn't persuade them to actually take it.

Friday, September 4

Captain Derrick reports "We ran the eight hour out of Sesuit and headed up to the Cottages. We set out the jigs and took some real nice fish, up to 40-inches. The anglers took nine keepers home, releasing the remainder of their catch."

From the guest log:

Another great day. Lot of keepers! ~ Angler from Weston, MA

Another good one! Thanks. ~ Angler from Weston, MA

Great weather. Easy fishing! ~ Angler from Weston, MA
