November 5, 2019  FFA Speaker Bill  Prodouz. Topic is fishing Cuttyhunk Island. Bill will talk about his 2 day fishing experience while staying on Cuttyhunk. 


Cuttyhunk is known for its beautiful scenery and fun atmosphere, but has also made a name for itself as a premier striper fishing destination in the Elizabethan Islands.


Cuttyhunk sits in the middle of the striped bass prespawn staging area. Fish glut themselves on an abundance of squid and sand eels as well as school after school of bunker. Once the water warms to the perfect temperature, the fish move inland and up the many tributaries throughout Massachusetts and Maine to spawn. This makes for a great fishery full of fish ranging from small schoolies up to 50-pound-plus monsters. It is all about timing as to whether you will catch the big fish or just the schoolies.

Guest speaker for January 7, 2020 is Mike Laptew. Mike Laptew is know as the "Diving Fisherman". Mike has been diving for over half a century, and fishing since shortly after his first steps. A one-time competitive spearfisherman, he lay down his gun 21 years ago, and has shot fish exclusively with a camera over the intervening two-plus decades. He admits how lucky he’s been to shape a career around his driving passion.


Mike’s footage may be found in the International Game Fishing Association (IGFA) Museum in Dania Beach, FL, as well as at aquariums and universities nationwide. Laptew has contributed underwater footage of sailfish, striped bass, fluke, bluefish, and roosterfish—among many other key gamefish—to such televised programs as National Geographic’s Wild Chronicles and Strange Days on Planet Earth; Days of a Sportsman, Saltwater Sportsman, Walker’s Cay Chronicles, Out There, Fishing New England, along with numerous documentaries and PBS productions. His writing and photography have been featured in an array of national and regional fishing magazines including Field & Stream, Saltwater Sportsman, Gray’s Sporting Journal, The Redbone Journal, On The Water, Offshore/ Northeast Boating, Center Console Angler and The Fisherman Magazine.

Smelt Camp

Smelt Camp – A Coastal Maine Tradition. They appear each winter, up and down the coast of Maine. Smelt camps, commercial enterprises, places where winter-weary Mainers go to catch some tasty smelt and share in a communal experience the likes of which exists nowhere else.


A smelt camp consists of any number of small shacks, or ice-fishing houses. These often feature benches, pre-cut holes, pre-rigged fishing lines, electric lights and even a small woodstove for heat. Thus, even on those sub-zero nights (which is when most folks go to smelt camp), sports can sit inside a smelt shack in sweaters or even shirtsleeves.


These camps are designed to accommodate various numbers of anglers and the cost of renting one varies according to whether the camp is a 4-person, 6-person, and so on, unit. In most instances, shacks are rented out for the duration of a tide, either incoming or outgoing. This works well, since smelt move in and out of tidal rivers with the tide.
