Whether you are fishing for salt or fresh water fish, there really is not much better than Cape Cod to offer everything you could possibly want in the way of fishing. Surf fishing or fly fishing, Striper, trout, bass, or bluefish...Cape Cod has it all.

Tips and Techniques:

When you catch striper or blues feeding on the surface, topwater lures (both wood and plastic) are the way to go. It is always a thrill to watch these wonderful saltwater fish chasing your lures across the surface of the water!

If you are trying to catch blues from the shore, you might want to try some of the most popular metal lures used on Cape Cod. They really are among the best choices of lures to use on the Cape. As a bonus, they are tough and highly
castable.

Swimmers are another good choice for fishing Cape Cod. They are not as easy to cast as metal or top water lures, but they allow you to fish various depths, and come in a wide variety of colors and styles.

Soft plastic lures also have advantages. They can be molded into practically any shape. They present very naturally in the water, and they are fairly inexpensive as well.
Jigs allow you to fish deeply very easily. You can get jigs in many shapes and colors allowing you to fish for specific fish under specific conditions very effectively.

Good bait choices for fishing Cape Cod are eels, sand eels, sea worms, clams, herring, mackerel, squid, butterfish and porgy. Seaworms work best for fishing in the river, and sand eels work best for surf fishing.
