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.

Center for Coastal Studies

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.

There’s an art exhibit of a different kind at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod.  Called "Artwork Inspired by a Presidential Home," it features artworks made with materials salvaged from the summer home of President and Jackie Kennedy in Hyannis Port. The artwork ranges from furniture (a table made from floorboards) to whimsical (a birdhouse incorporating pieces of the widow's walk) to functional (turned bowls and candlesticks).
