Angler Education: Bass On The Flats

Bass On The Flats, Cape Cod, drone video

Ryan Collins

If you caught this past weekend's episode of My Fishing Cape Cod TV, then you may of noticed a new segment called "Angler Education."

These 1-2 minute segments will air during commercial breaks of the TV show, and will highlight drone and underwater footage of Cape Cod's fish and wildlife.

This past weekend's segment included one of my most memorable drone flights of 2019, when I was able to film stripers in the 25-40 inch class as they calmly swam over a shallow water sandbar.

Today I'd like to give members of MFCC the opportunity to watch a slightly longer version of this clip. If you are a member of My Fishing Cape Cod, then click play below to watch now!

My First Holdover Striper of 2020

Ryan Collins

The weather over the past week has been terrific! Most days have been sunny with little wind, and temperatures have been very comfortable. It's been perfect weather for being active outside.

Based off what I've read, mild winter weather is one of the many reasons why Cape Cod was settled. In general, Cape Cod winters are less harsh than winter weather further inland.

Since arriving home from Costa Rica on January 27th, I have been out each and every day, enjoying the sunshine and looking for my first holdover striper of 2020. The weather has been great not just for fishing, but also for exploring new areas.

Topwater Jack Crevalle From The Costa Rica Surf

Ryan Collins

Yesterday afternoon I was working on my computer, taking care of some business in preparation for the Feb. 22 MFCC Breakfast event.

The front porch where I was working provides me with a clear view of the Golfo Dulce. It's a perfect spot where I can be productive on the computer, while simultaneously scanning the water for birds and other signs of roosterfish and big jacks.

Suddenly at around 2pm a flock of fifteen to twenty frigate birds appeared over the surf directly in front of our cabina. I could see splashes beneath the birds which meant that bait (and most likely roosters or big jacks) had moved in tight to the beach.

Golfo Dulce Yellowfin Tuna & Dorado

Ryan Collins

The past few days here in Playa Zancudo Costa Rica have been interesting. In this post I will fill you in on what's been going on the past several days here in Costa Rica.

From broken down golf carts to chipped teeth, howler monkeys to yellowfin tuna, there's been no telling what might happen next!

You might recall this past summer over July Fourth weekend I was launching my boat at the Sandwich Marina when the trailer winch handle flipped off and smacked me in my teeth.

I cracked several teeth and had them repaired, however earlier this week one of the repaired teeth cracked off again while I was eating a soft taco!
