Heading Off-Road In Search Of Stripers

My father and I had to move quickly if we wanted to make the tide before sunset. It was late in the day and we still had another 7 miles of beach driving, and 1 mile of beach hiking left to do before we would arrive at the spot.

The weather was picture perfect. Not only was I planning to catch a few bass, but I was also planning on flying my quadcopter, so I could capture some of the gorgeous scenery that surrounded my father and I, and share it with you here on the blog.

Cape Cod Fishing Report | Heading Off-Road

The drive was a piece of cake and very enjoyable. We passed loons, terns, piping plovers and variety of bird life. Last time out on this beach I saw whales, so I kept my eyes peeled for them as well.

My plan was to drive to a particular spot along the beach and then hike on foot to a point of land which provided fishing access to a very strong current.

In this spot the bottom drops off dramatically and it is common to find bass here.

With limited time I felt that the trio of a point of land, current and a dramatic drop-off would provide me with my best chance of hooking up before it got dark.

I love fishing because I love being outside in nature. Catching a few fish is really just a bonus :)
