This past Tuesday July 7th, I headed out fishing with four members from My Fishing Cape Cod and captain Cullen of Cape Star Charters.
It was a memorable trip with a great crew of US veterans! The group trip was paid for by anonymous donors from MFCC, who jumped at the opportunity to sponsor a trip for veterans.
Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite underwater images and underwater video footage from this memorable trip!
The image above captures two striped bass as they zone in on my da 'Squid soft plastic made by the Fish Snax Lures company.
Most of the stripers we caught during this trip were between 24-36 inches in length. I estimate the striped bass in this next image to be about 33 inches long.
The bass were holding along a rip off Monomoy Island. The fish would readily come to the surface to investigate and attack our lures.
At one point during the trip, a school of bass and bluefish pinned a group of squid against the surface.
The water around the boat turned black with ink as the squid made desperate attempt to escape being eaten!
Various different lures produced bites on this trip, and the action was pretty steady during the course of the tide.

Thank you to captain Cullen of Cape Star Charters as well as the members from MFCC who attended this trip!
In conclusion, I'd like to wish you the best of luck if you are able to make it out fishing this weekend. Be safe and have fun out there on the water, beach or at the canal.
