Cape Cod – Hyannis, MA – Directions

Tuna and Sea Bass, September 23-30

Capt. Joe Huck, zig-zagging his way homeward in a sizeable following sea Tuesday afternoon, debriefed me on the results of the Helen H’s two most recent two-day canyon runs. Last Thursday and Friday, September 23-24, the Helen left Hyannis for this fall’s Shimano-sponsored canyon tuna trip carrying a limited load of anglers and several of […]

Canyon Tuna, More Tuna, Sea Bass and Giant Report, Sept. 5-20, 2010

I apologize for the interruption in the reports program. Look for updates on a much more consistent basis moving forward. Much has changed since the last entry, most notably the duration of trips aboard the Helen H now that the fall tuna season has hit high gear. For those who’ve been out of the loop, […]

Cod, Sea Bass, Tuna, Gales, Gales and Gales Report, August 21-25

A big, ugly, expansive low pressure and its screeching easterly winds kept the entire Helen H Fleet lashed to the pilings from late Sunday through Wednesday, and Capt. Joe Huck was preparing to get back in the saddle Thursday morning after the long forced pause. Last trip before Mother Nature put the hammer down was […]

Cod, Striper, Tuna, Fluke, Sea Bass Report, August 19

Capt. Joe Huck on the Helen H had a big load of news when I finally caught up with him late-week. Leading it off was a huge 10.8-pound doormat fluke-the biggest landed last week-by angler, Tommy McMasters of Brooklyn, NY. The full-day fluke trips, headed west now to fish off the Vineyard’s S side and […]

Fluke, Sea Bass, Striped Bass Bluefins, Yellows, etc. (August 11, 2010)

I apologize for the number of days that have slipped away since the last entry I posted. It's one of the perils of working a headboat deck in August, when seemingly every crew starts to fray under the strain of the tourist onslaught's seasonal apex. It's not that the average high-season tourist is particularly demanding [...]

Fluke and More Fluke Report, July 23-27

Fluke remains the name of the game for the Helen H Fleet, with very few distractions. Capt. Joe Huck rated Tuesday morning’s half-day trip as the best showing of slabs on a short trip so far this season. That trip was set off by ideal drift conditions-a nice easy breeze out of the west backing […]

Fluke, Bass and Tuna Report, July 17-22

It’s been a hectic week around the Helen H, and Capt. Joe Huck has remained in near-constant motion. The fluke fishing on both the local half-day and the full-day Nantucket runs has shown major signs of improvement in the consistency of the action. In general, big fish for all trips have fallen in the 7- […]

Fluke, Sea Bass, Striper, Tuna Report, July 16 2010 (Belated)

Capt. Joe Huck on the Helen H noted he’s seen some big improvement in the fluke fishing over the last week or so, due at least in part to the strengthening tides that are finally allowing the boats to cover some ground on the drift. Last Thursday, a full-day private fluke charter with the Cape […]
