Fishing on Cape Cod -- Fall is Bluefish Season!

Its fall on Cape Cod the leaves are changing, the days are growing shorter, the cranberry bogs are flooding, and most importantly, the fish are running! Autumn is the best time of year for fishing one of the regions exciting fish Bluefish.

Blue fish not just fun, but good eatin too!

Blue fish are oft-maligned for their strong taste and aggressive temperament, but are incredibly fun to catch for young and old alike. This time of year schools of small or snapper blues come into the protected bays, harbors and estuaries of Cape to feed on the plentiful autumn baitfish and when they do, they come hungry! Snapper blues are extremely aggressive and will bite on just about anything (including a bent paper clip). I generally use lures because when you are in a school of snappers you cant keep your hook baited quickly enough! I recommend using a small spoon or a popper that makes lots of noise on the surface. Also, treble hooks take best advantage of their small mouths. Look for birds working the surface of the water and throw your lure near them often the larger fish chase small stuff up to the surface where the birds (and you) can get at them. Either way, get out and have some fun and when you get home, try Neds Snapper Blue recipe - this is the season for bluefish!

 

Neds Snapper Blue Recipe

Marinade bluefish filets in a ziploc bag with enough lemon juice and orange juice in equal parts to cover the fish. Add black pepper to taste and olive oil. Grill in aluminum foil over a very hot grill until flesh flakes apart easily with a fork. Enjoy!
