It's no joke: Cape Cod anglers eagerly await 'the funny fish'

S Junker

In mid-August, many a Cape Cod fisherman's thoughts turn toward false albacore — also known as albies, or "the funny fish." They're fast, they're picky, and they're exciting to catch.

Kevin Blinkoff of On The Water joins us to talk about the first reports of their arrival, and why fishermen love them so.

We've also got a roundup of the week's fishing action. Give it a listen.
