This weekend myself and members of My Fishing Cape Cod have found good numbers of striped bass from shore and from boat.
Early this morning I met up with my good friend and MFCC member Todd Baranowski at the un-Godly hour of 2am for a few hours of eel slinging.
We hooked into plenty of nice stripers as the stars shone above in the cool clear sky. As soon as the moon began to sink near the horizon the coyotes began howling and barking somewhere in the woods nearby, all while we were reeling in fish!
All in all myself and Todd (pictured above) caught at least 15 stripers on eels, and received many more bites.
For a time we were receiving bites on nearly every cast. The largest fish were in the 30-34 inch range, and all the bass were released to fight another day.

This weekend I was surprised to hear about good boat fishing for stripers and bluefish. One of our members got out on the boat and encountered big bluefish and stripers of up to 35 inches.

In conclusion if you know where to go then I feel you can expect to find good action with stripers from now into November. It's not unusual for schoolies and some surprisingly big fish to be caught as late as Thanksgiving here on Cape.
As always, tight lines and take care
I’m fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I’ve been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!
