Goose Hummock Shop in Orleans, Massachusetts, has issued its weekly roundup of fishing reports for June 13, 2012. Here are some highlights:
- Capeshores Charters managed to land a legal salable tuna after doubling up. The fish measured 73 1/4″ long and weighed 180 pounds (after dressing). There are several harpoon boats and spotter planes working the zone as well. It seems there are decent numbers of bluefin in many size classes, and signs indicate a good year for charter catches.
Capt. Hap Farrell reports that, “last Friday we had an early-season bass blitz. The kind you read about. It lasted 4 days. There were some slow periods but for the most part any of the charter boats that left Rock Harbor did extremely well on fish up to 30-pound class. Basically, the area was from just off Paine’s Creek to the east up to just west of the old Target ship. The average size was 34 to 36 inches.”
- Capt. Mark of the Shannon Sea reports that he fished out front of Sesuit Harbor and slammed the bass. “We were using umbrella rigs, red and black setups with silver spoons as the trailers. We were running this on 100 yards of wire. Some guys were running leadcore line, 6-8 colors with deep divers (black or silver). The fish were big…35-50” class. …These fish are coming out of the canal and running east, right towards Eastham. If you start in the morning, try near Barnstable. You should see them smashing on the surface and as the day goes forward, you could end up off Ocean Edge (Brewster Flats).”
