Perhaps you are not able to fish Cape Cod 7 days a week, and you are looking to maximize the short windows of time you do get to fish the Cape.
Most people who enjoy fishing the Cape, only get a few trips in each summer. These people are eager to make the most of their short windows of fishing opportunity. They want to make a memory for their kids, and put a fish or two on the grille for dinner.
These are Dads and Moms who want to have a nice, safe day on the water and enjoy the excitement and satisfaction of catching a big striped bass.
Does this sound familiar to you? Odds are it does. Most of us are not able to spend as much time fishing the Cape as we would like. Life, kids, the career-you name it and it will get in the way of fishing.
The good news is that there are certain Cape fishing techniques that naturally provide less experienced anglers and folks who can’t be on the water 7 days a week – with a better than normal chance at hooking up with a big bass. Said another way, by fishing the Cape with live bait, you will in most cases improve your odds of success – as opposed to fishing with the fake stuff.
In essence, live bait does all the work for you. You do not have to be an expert caster or jigger, you just let the bait swim out and wait for it to be gobbled up by a fish.
This is why I choose live bait for the majority of my Cape fishing charters aboard the Miss Loretta. Often times I have folks with me who have never before fished Cape Cod for striped bass. Live bait is the perfect choice in these scenarios.
In the below video I was fishing with my Mom, my uncle and my cousins. For my cousins this was their first time ever fishing the Cape for striped bass.
So how can you make the most of those precious few Cape Cod fishing trips next season?
That is the goal of this post-to show you how to find and use live bait to put that one big fish of the summer in your boat.
Now I cannot guarantee that these following tips will result in you catching the fish of your dreams. You still have to put some time and energy in.
But I can guarantee that these tips will quickly shift the odds in your favor.
