Cape Cod 1955 Cape Fishing Report

The following is a Cape Cod fishing report from the Spring of 1955. It gives a good idea of how the spring fishing was a little over half a century ago.

Mid-April this year saw the first tautog of the season taken from Buzzards Bay and the Cape Cod Canal. Three anglers broke the ice of the new Spring season with a catch of thirty-two from the Bay. Just one was taken from the Canal water. The Bay fish were big fellows. The thirty-two caught were taken during seven hours. The heaviest went eleven pounds, and all the others were in the nine-pound range.

Large cod and flounders were also taken at the Canal. Flounders, in fact, were so numerous that, within an hour and a half, one boat group of fishermen quit then with about one hundred taken. Perch, stripers, cod up to fifty pounds, haddock up to twenty pounds, mackerel—are other fish caught in this vicinity.

50 pound codfish and 20 pound haddock caught in the Cape Cod Canal!  big surprise
