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. 

Drew Austin

It's the time of year when we often hear about unusual fish appearing in our waters, and this season is no exception. Anglers casting into false albacore have been coming up with an unexpected fish: juvenile king mackerel.

Anyone who’s been walking down by the water these days along the south side of the Cape, or on the Vineyard, has probably noticed a lot of boat activity on the water and plenty of fish action. What's it all about? Most likely, it's false albacore.
