Angling for funny fish in Woods Hole.

It's the last Fishing News of 2019 (sigh). We look back at some of the highlights of the season past (great fishing for albies and Spanish mackerel), and lowlights (striped bass do seem to be, as scientists tell us, not as abundant). And we look forward to some great autumn fishing (the Fall Run, tautog, trout in freshwater). 

And Kevin Blinkoff, of On the Water magazine, tells us about StriperFest, the big outdoor party for fishermen that's happening this Saturday at Falmouth harbor.

Plus, we round-up the fishing action for the week, with suggestions for what to look for if you're heading out. Give it a listen.
