After 3 epic fishing trips in a row I knew I was due for a slow outing. Well I received that slow outing this morning. We put in a bunch of hours earlier today, and were rewarded with just a couple of keeper bass and bunch of small bluefish.
But things change quickly in the world of Cape Cod fishing, so we headed back out onto the water this evening during a torrential rain storm. The strengthening north east breeze only made conditions that much more un-enjoyable.
However the fish don’t care if its raining and man oh man were they feeding! Miles of ocean that were virtually empty earlier today were chock full of life. It was as if a switch had been flipped and all the bass in the area were now on the hunt.
The fish were big and extremely aggressive. We had no trouble hooking up and managed a handful of 30 pounders and quite a few bass in the 20 pound range.
I give a lot of credit to my Dad for joining me on this quick trip. Both him and I were absolutely soaked to the bone!
It was all light tackle spinning setups this trip which made the fishing that much more fun.
By 8pm we had caught 14 keepers from 18 – 35 pounds. The wind began to really pick up from the north east so I decided to head for the dock before it got too bad.
All in all a great trip squeezed in before some tough weather hit the Cape.

Good luck fishing this week!
