Well, it’s that time of year again to get in on the light tackle, fast action striper fishing that is currently taking place around Cape Cod’s surrounding waters. This past weekend did not disappoint the crew and we had limits of striped bass up to 40 inches.
Our day started leaving Brewers Plymouth Marine at 7:30am with the crew. The day started as overcast when we left the harbor which was perfect for the early morning topwater action we were looking for. As we turned around the number 9 can headed on our way to Provincetown, the birds were working the water hard and there were striped bass busting the surface of the water. We decided to make a quick pit stop to see what we could find. Well, we had about an hour of vertical jigging on schoolie striped bass to 27in.. While these were not the monster fish we were in search of, we started the day with tight lines.
After a few fish to the boat, we headed off to the Provincetown area. We we greeted to flat calm seas and a quick 30 minute ride across the bay. When we arrived to our spot, the fish were stacked up all along the bottom and our Lowrance HDS8 had no problem showing us where to find the fish. It didn’t take more than a minute or two of our jigs hitting the bottom and we were on. There is nothing like hooking into these striped bass on real light tackle and watching two 10 year old boys in the battle of their lives. For the next few hours we were on the fish, action was fast and the kids arms were burning by the end of the trip. We had our limit of fish with the trophy fish of the day being caught by one of the boys, 40 inches on the dot. Lot’s off keeper fish, with a lot of catch and release as well. Great day for the crew. We had a quick ride home as well with calm seas and the twin Evinrude E-tec’s from Eagle Marine served us well again.
Check out our facebook page for some great video as well. We are back on the water this week and through the weekend. The striper fishing should remain hot for the next few weeks and the bluefin tuna are just starting to show up. Get in on the great light tackle striper action while it’s hot.
