"You Don't Want to Go to Sleep": Heading 100 Miles Offshore to Fish "The Canyons"

Aug 19, 2016

One hundred miles off the coast of Cape Cod, the Gulf Stream sweeps into the edge of the continental shelf in an area known as "The Canyons." It's a habitat rich with whales, sharks, and big fish more commonly thought of as tropical, such as mahi, big-eyed tuna and blue marlin. For some Cape Cod fisherman, heading to The Canyons is the highlight of a fishing season.

On this week's Fishing News, Kevin Blinkoff of On The Water magazine, describes a trip to The Canyons - how long it takes, what the fishing is like, and how beautiful the nights are. Give it a listen.
