In looking forward to the 2014 fishing season I reviewed what worked in
2013. Early on the hot tuna rig to have in the water was the
Carlson Sluggo Bar
Carlson Birdbar with 11" black squid
teasers and a glow stinger. We have all been
looking for that special rig that would mimic the sand eels and squid that the bluefin
love so much. These are the rigs!
In the Canyons the hottest bar was the
5" Hard Head. Either green or purple trolled from the end of white water
to the third wave was deadly. The rigs had a 9" Resin Head Lure of the
same color for a stinger.
At the same time in the early
weeks of June the traditional squid colors were producing. During the
the brighter colors like rainbow were catching East of Chatham. But
others I talked to said they were getting bites early on Black with
Green Glow stingers. The smaller fish were three to four miles off
Chatham with the bigger fish on Crab Ledge out to the BC Buoy. I would
expect the tuna to be here by the first week of June based on their
arrival in Rhode Island and Massachusetts the past few seasons.
The Striper bite in RI began in April for schoolies with the big boys right behind. On Cape Cod school after
school of Striped Bass arrived in May with our custom umbrella rig, soft
plastics and jigs doing the trick.
