– So my favoritething to do right nowis hike out into the Cape’swilderness, so to speak,and find remote fishing spots,and catch fish in these remote areas. It’s a lot of fun, itinvolves a lot of walking,and, this spring, I planon doing several tripsthat will require fiveto 15 miles of hiking. Now, I know not everybody’sable to do that,perhaps you’re a little olderor just can’t walk that far,maybe you have some kids, small children. Well, my friend Garrettis gotta be helping uswrite about easy-accessfishing areas this season. And one spot in particular for the springis South Cape Beach inthe town of Mashpee. This is a great place thatGarrett and I go to often,and as you can see inthe Google Earth image,there’s a nice big parking lot,and you don’t have to walkfar to get to fishy water. And, especially during the spring,bluefish will comeamazingly close to shore. You can catch stripers here, but bluefish,like this one Garrett’s reelingin, are the prime target. Now, bluefish fishing duringthe spring is a lot of fun,you can get ’em on topwater,and you don’t have to bea seasoned fisherman withyears and decades of experienceto catch these bluefish. Another spot to try forbluefish is a little east ofSouth Cape Beach, at a placecalled Craigville Beach. This is another spot that Garrett and Iwill probably venture to this season,and, as you can see, there’sa nice big parking lot,and you don’t have to gofar to find fishy waters. This fish was not caught at Craigville,but bluefish like this are typicalof what you can findthere during the spring. The third place, andI went here with Kyle,who is a eight-year-old angler,who you’ll meet in a moment,is the fish pier at Scusset Beach. This is a great placeto go during the spring,before it gets too busy with people,and this is terrificif you have young kids. This is where I grewup, learned how to fish. It’s simple fishing,you drop a little hook,maybe a sabiki rig, witha little piece of mackereldown to the bottom, and youcan catch these small little,well, I used to call’em perch, or choggies,and they’re just about everywhere,and it doesn’t take alot of effort to catch,they can be a little tough to hook,but that’s not the onlyfish that you might catchfishing this way. And if you’re more intostripers, I’ve also taken fishup to 35 pounds jiggingin this general area. But what Kyle has righthere is a sea bass,and you can take sea bass,tautog,flounder,it’s a great spot. So stay tuned this seasonfor more easy-access areasthat Garrett will behighlighting here on the blog,and scroll down below thisvideo for more informationabout some easy-access spotsthat you can check out this spring. So we have a lot to look forward to,and whether you gotta behiking 10 miles or walking20 steps, I think thiswill be a fantastic spring.
