Default Do Sharks/Tuna get inside CC Bay

Ok, so this is slightly of topic, but I have been tring to find out some info on the net for days, now taxing all my research skills... this is a posting of last resort.

So, when late July rolls around do Game sharks, BFTs or YFTs get inside Cape Cod Bay or Lower Mass Bay in numbers high enough to make fishing worth while? This is the best site I have found so far on the subject (http://www.newenglandsharks.com), but I still can't get a good feel for the inner cape action.

I live on the south shore and would like to start learning the art of big game fishing, but with a 19' boat the inside bank of Stellwagon about far as I am willing to be out (45 minute run in good weather). I booked myself on a Tuna trip on Aug 5th and a shark trip for later that month to that should be a wealth of knowledge, but if anyone here has some info on innner CC Bay or Lower MA Bay action would be great. Thanks.

There is an article in the latest Saltwater Sportsman mag about Bluefin going into CC Bay late in the season.

unless he comes through the canal to the bay, Wareham isn't applicable to the question! That's the south side.........

Plenty of sharks there...........

I have a friend who tuna fishes in the bay.......I think he goes after "football" tuna...........the small guys...........but still tuna

That's what he tells me anyway

Yeah footballs and the occasional blue shark is good enough for me.

Thanks Shock.

I think there was a white in Martha Vineyard last year, the one around Chatham a few years back.

Shock,
You missed a year. It was the Summer before last.....

We have been seeing some good ones along the islands. I got a bad case of heebie jeebies last year just after dawn when I saw a dorsel as I was reaching for a blue I had just caught. The tail was about 8' back too. Of course I was alone and no camera.

WOW!! Several years back while sailing in a sunfish in Lewis Bay (Yarmouth) something at least 6-7 feet swam right under us......
I fell in the water about 5 minutes later..........so that was scary!!
