Springtime Topwater Cape Cod Striper Blitzes

Ryan Collins

Every so often the stars align and everything works out perfectly. The weather is cooperating, the fish are biting, the boat is running well etc.

This is exactly what myself and a crew of My Fishing Cape Codders encountered during this My Fishing Cape Cod group fishing trip.

This turned out to be one of the best striper bites we experienced all season. There are no guarantees when you go fishing with us on a MFCC group trip, but the action you'll encounter in this video is the ultimate goal!


During this trip we are fishing with captain Cullen Lundholm of Cape Star Charters. Each week we organize at least one fishing trip with captain Cullen for members of My Fishing Cape Cod. Members of MFCC can hop onboard one of these trips at an affordable per person rate.

What do you think?

Let me know by commenting below.

  1. If you fished a bucktail or whipit fish underneath the fish hitting the surface plugs I wonder if you could catch even bigger fish?

    1. That would of been something to try for sure Dex. I would think a live mackerel would of definitely caught the eye of any 40 pounders in the area.

  2. I was on the trip with Ryan and Cullen and it was epic. Thanks to both of you for putting us on the fish. Great time.

    1. It was great to meet and fish with you Frank.

      I am very happy the bass cooperated!

  3. Been there done that! Best time of year!! With I could teleport in!!

    1. Those are special mornings for sure Steve!
