Not so very far offshore from Cape Cod, along the edge of the continental shelf, fishermen are catching swordfish and tile fish, mahi-mahi and blue marlin. It happens in an area called The Canyons.

Andy Nabreski of On The Water magazine tells us about a recent trip 100 miles offshore to fish The Canyons. Typically, he says, it's a two-day trip. And at night? "The stars are incredibly bright," he says.

Also, we've got a roundup of the inshore fishing action, with anglers working harder now as waters warm around the Cape and Islands.

It's all in just 4 minutes. Give it a listen.
