A familiar scene from 2017: anglers awaiting an eruption of false albacore.

September draws to a close with a spray of baitfish like silver coins flung across the surface of the water. We wrap up our broadcast season of The Fishing News looking back at the highlights and rhythms of a season marked by epic fishing at the Cape Cod Canal, anglers frothing at the mouth over false albacore, and, yes, all that bait. 

And we look ahead to what still awaits us: stripers and big blues in October, tautog through November, and—who knows?—maybe even some mid-winter freshwater fishing.

That's all in the Fishing News below. Give it a listen.
