“Big Bass Territory” | Part #2 of the MFCC Fishing Trip

The entire MFCC crew and I had arrived at the previous evening’s hot spot just as the sun crept above the horizon. As a group we had walked 45 minutes in darkness, through woods and along a cliff, to get to this spot at this very moment.

I could see several birds hovering over water no deeper than two feet. The birds were quite adamant about diving and grabbing one of the small fish trapped in shallow. Based on their actions I figured peanut bunker were still in the area.

EXTENDED REPORT “Big Bass Territory” | Part #2 of the MFCC Fishing Trip

During the day time when fishing among boulders I’ve found that pencil poppers and large swimming plugs work pretty well. I wanted to cast far out and reach some of the boulders and rocks that were holding farther offshore.

So instead of donning a wet suit and swimming out to those boulders, I tied on a 6 inch Guppy Pencil Popper, which casts like a missile. Because this lure darts left and right across the surface, the hits from striped bass are very dramatic.

Peanut Bunker Bass Blitz | MFCC Member Fishing Trip Part #1

I was standing on top of a giant boulder, a good four feet off the ground, arms wailing in the air in a desperate attempt to gain the attention of several MFCC members who were several hundred yards away.

We had been walking for miles, as a group, through some of the most difficult striped bass fishing terrain in Massachusetts, with very little to show for it.

MFCC faithful Jim Murphy and I, had finally found the fish, after hours of nothing. I was not sure how long the action would last, so I wanted to get the rest of the group in on the action ASAP.

(Continued from the report Peanut Bunker Bass Blitz | MFCC Member Fishing Trip Part #1)

This MFCC member fishing trip began at 9AM in New Bedford, at the Cuttyhunk Ferry Company. First to arrive was Ned Bean, followed by Jim Murphy, Todd Jarvis, Ryan Turcotte, Jane Simposon, Tom Simpson and of course my own parents, Jake and Kathy, who adore Cuttyhunk.

Dex Chadsey was slated to meet us in the evening, and Lori Rizzo would be over the next day. Unfortunately Jeffrey Moore was not able to make it, but we will look forward to seeing you Jeff next time!

We all hopped onto the 9AM ferry, bound for Cuttyhunk Island and not sure exactly what to expect fishing-wise, and in general.

Cape Cod False Albacore Fishing Report

The birds were working hard as dozens of false albies tore through the surface. Peanut bunker scattered into the air. The scene was an all-out surface feeding frenzy.

Jeff Coates (my fishing buddy and captain for this trip) had made the right call. We had left fish to find more fish and it had actually worked out in our favor.
