Netting shrimp on Cape Cod? Anglers see uptick in unusual 'summer visitors'
The oceans are mysterious. Every summer, fish show up in our waters that, by many measures, don’t belong here.
This week, Andy Nabreski of On The Water magazine joins us to offer some insight.
If you’re a regular angler, most of the time you’re pulling in fish that are familiar to you: bluefish, black sea bass, scup, stripers. Even the odd ones, like sea robins, aren’t unexpected. But every now and then, something appears that makes you scratch your head...
Last year saw an incursion of brown shrimp. Yes—like the shrimp you can buy for shrimp cocktail. Here's a great video of Andy and Jimmy Fee out at night on Cape Cod catching these shrimp.
But warming waters mean that more and more southern species of fish are showing up in Cape Cod waters. Like northern kingfish, blue runners, and Almaco jacks.
We talk about these sightings, and we round up the week's fishing action, including the continuation of great tuna fishing.
Give it a listen.
