Topwater Striped Bass | Heart-Pounding Doc Footage!

ryan collins my fishing cape cod breakfast

​

Catching fish on a topwater lure is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting ways to catch a fish! This rings true for species across the globe.

Here on Cape Cod it's possible to catch tuna and other species on topwater lures. However, targeting big striped bass is definitely the most popular.

The following clip was filmed earlier in June, and captures the most heart-pounding moment of my 2020 season thus far. I hope after watching this video you'll have a clearer understanding of how stripers track and attack topwater lures.

​

Now that summer has arrived, bluefin tuna are starting to show in the waters surrounding the Cape & Islands.

Earlier in the season, the crew from the Goose Hummock Shop in Orleans created a series of seminar videos for fishing on Cape Cod.

That's why I figured today would be a good time to share captain Phil Howarth's seminar "Intro to Tuna Fishing", which is perfect for anyone who is interested in trying to catch their first tuna.

Crab Hides From Big Striped Bass | Underwater Drama Caught On Video

ryan collins my fishing cape cod breakfast

​

So far this 2020 fishing season, I've gained a deep respect for the areas I fish. Underwater videos which capture "special moments" in nature, have really had an impact on me.

For example, life's good when you're a crab and you find a chunk of mackerel. But in the ocean, the tables can turn quickly - especially when striped bass arrive on scene!

The following clip captures an "underwater drama" between a crab and a school of stripers. I would imagine scenes like this one probably unfold daily in the waters surrounding Cape Cod & the Islands.

“Sleeping” Stripers | New Underwater Footage

​

All animals need rest, and striped bass on Cape Cod are no different. In fact, I think stripers, tuna and other fish species probably spend a lot of time resting and relaxing-just like people!

This past Friday I filmed 20-30 inch stripers as they were "sleeping". Some of the bass were barely moving - you could even say they were "sitting" or "laying" on the bottom. 

The fish were basically motionless, until I got too close and spooked them into motion. After a brief swim away from me, the schools of stripers would once again settle back down and "go back to sleep" on the bottom.

Within 2 hours we scooped up several trash bags full of junk between the Sagamore Bridge and the Bournedale Herring run.

This past Thursday June 4th I had a unique opportunity to film and photograph a school of hundreds of striped bass as they hunted sand eels along the bottom and on the surface.
