The first keeper-size migratory striped bass of 2013 will be moving into the Cape Cod region roughly 4 months from now. So said another way, it’s never too early to start thinking about how to catch ‘em!
This past season most of the really nice fish my charters and I were able to catch were caught using live bait. This really isn’t anything new, as live bait has accounted for most of the nice fish I’ve been lucky enough to hook since I was a little kid. Most Cape Cod striped bass fishermen will agree that live bait is one of the most effective ways to catch striped bass.
Now this is not just a Cape Cod thing. This past summer Captain Blaine Anderson of Anderson Guide Services caught an estimated 74 pound striped bass on a live eel down in Connecticut. Without a doubt live bait works well up and down the striper coast.
My two favorite types of live bait to use for stripers are live mackerel and live eels. Both are readily available throughout the season and work like a charm in most fishing striped bass fishing scenarios.
So based on my own personal experiences and feedback from the MFCC community, I figured it would be beneficial to host a live bait fishing webinar. So that is exactly what we did this past Wednesday evening!
As always I owe a big thank you to everyone who attended the Live Bait Striper Strategies for 2013 webinar. It was really great having you on the line.
