I’m excited for this week, because I feel there’s a great chance that at least a few fresh migratory stripers will move into the waters off Cape Cod.

I’m ready to hit the sand and splash the boat, knowing I have a legitimate chance of putting a bend in the rod.

In this post I’d like to share with you some things you can expect to find if you venture out fishing on Cape Cod during the next several days.

The Herring Are Here On Cape Cod, And The Bass Aren’t Far Behind…

cape cod herring stripers

I spent a morning this week visiting many of Cape Cod’s herring runs. Driving from herring run to herring run is a spring tradition that I share with many eager and enthusiastic Cape Cod fishers.

The great news is that many of the Cape’s herring runs are chock-full of river herring. It’s awesome to see so many herring returning to spawn and I feel it bodes well for spring striper fishing here on the Cape.

I would expect schoolie stripers to start appearing along Cape Cod’s coastline any day now, and I myself hope to catch one this weekend. In this post we’ll discuss herring and how you can use them to your advantage, to find and catch early spring striped bass.

This past week has been all “butt in seat” time for me, as I work on updating the MFCC website in time for spring. I feel I was born to go fishing (not program websites) so working through all the “techy” stuff is challenging, but definitely worth it.

My main goal with this latest batch of updates was to make it easier for you to locate the reports, videos, webinars and other information you want and need.

How I’m Going To Catch A 40lb Bass From The Beach This Season

I feel that by saying I am going to catch a 40lb bass from the beach this season, I automatically increase the odds of it occurring.

It’s the Law Of Attraction, in action.

Of course fish do as they please, and I understand that there are no guarantees in fishing.  Mother Nature will make the final decision.

Regardless, I want to share with you how I plan to catch a 40lb bass from the beach this season, because I feel my plan can help you in your own pursuits.

Plus it’s fun to dream, wouldn’t you agree!?

If you are like me then you are really starting to chomp at the bit. Spring is right around the corner and so are the fish.

The first migratory striped bass will be on the small side, but soon thereafter we’ll start seeing much larger stripers. Each spring on Cape Cod bass as large as 50 pounds (I’m sure there’s a 60 in there as well) move north to the Cape.

Video | Anatomy Of A Shallow Water Bass Blitz


Every once in a while on Cape Cod striped bass and bluefish will push bait right up onto the beach. Sometimes acres of fish will feed in just inches of water.

This post is going to contain zero fluff and I am only going to recommend the exact gear that I feel is best to use during the spring on Cape Cod.
