The bass were biting this weekend!
Christmas may be right around the corner, but stripers can still be caught on Cape Cod, if you know where to look.
I would imagine that 99% of the Cape's striper population has migrated south. Yet for whatever reason, very small and scattered schools of bass remain here on Cape Cod.
So after receiving some very helpful intel, I launched my Hobie Mirage kayak this past weekend, in search of my first December striped bass of the season.
Weather conditions were breezy, but pleasant. The sun was shining and it felt really good to be back on the water.
I began spotting bait minutes after launching the kayak. A school of around one hundred 4 inch minnows (probably silversides) swam right beneath the kayak.
I tossed my lure behind the kayak and started trolling. 30 seconds later I got my first hit, my rod bent over, and I was on with a fish!
