Around the Cape and Islands there’s no shortage of great fish to go for, but there's one fish that doesn’t get a lot of respect. It’s the sea robin.  Maybe that's because it's the only local fish that makes a croak of protest when you pull it from the water (we've got the audio).

"It's a very cool looking fish," says Kevin Blinkoff, of On The Water magazine. "It's reddish-brown, yellow, and orange. And probably most remarkable, they have these huge, wing-like pectoral fins."

Fishing is one of those activities that sounds appealing to plenty of people, but doesn’t seem so easy to approach. What’s the deal with the gear?  Where do you go to look for fish? Now I'm here, how come I'm not catching anything?

It’s still early, we’re just getting into June, but so far this has been proving to be a great year for striped bass fishing. And there’s a way in which this is not totally unexpected. For many fishermen, there was a sense it might be coming.

This August, the United States is going to see a total solar eclipse. It's a rare event, and if you haven’t already finalized your summer plans, you may want to put yourself in a place to witness it.

Sometimes it seems as if black sea bass are a little overlooked around Cape Cod, with all the talk that happens about striped bass fishing. But if you've ever eaten black sea bass, you know this is a real injustice.

The skeleton of a 35-foot whale is being installed for public display at the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown. It’s not just any whale, either. It's the skeleton of an 11-year-old humpback that researchers followed from when she was a calf.

Just as many local fishermen were brushing the winter cobwebs from their rods, readying for that first trip to the water in 2017, word comes that a pair of anglers out of Falmouth landed a 64lb striped bass.

That's not how it's supposed to work.
