Enter The Labor Day Giveaway!

Last week I ran a giveaway on the MFCC Instagram page which generated a lot of buzz! Today I wanted to keep the momentum going by launching a new giveaway here on the website.

The following prize package is valued at over $300 and features some awesome items, including a Strategic Angler lure with "My Fishing Cape Cod" inscribed on its back.

Congrats to our winner Chris Lantz ?? Thank you to everyone who entered! Please stay tuned for more fun giveaways coming soon.


Here Is What's Up For Grabs

One of my favorite items in this giveaway is the Strategic Angler American Shad FRANTIC. This is a handmade lure created by the one and only Merv Rubiano. The lure measures 8.5 inches and weighs 4.2 ounces.

The FRANTIC is a fast-sinking lure, ideal for targeting bluefin tuna this fall off Cape Cod. Merv even went the extra mile by inscribing "My Fishing Cape Cod" on the lure's back. 

The FRANTIC is a beautiful lure. So beautiful in fact that past giveaway winners have returned the FRANTIC to me because they feel bad accepting such a gorgeous handmade plug! 

However, I am hoping whoever wins this giveaway will finally put the FRANTIC to good use, either by displaying it on their mantel, or by using it on the water to catch big tuna and stripers.

Also included in this giveaway is a My Fishing Cape Cod hat. This is our newest version of the MFCC hat with black mesh and a black/grey logo. As a side note, all our hats are currently sold out, but I will probably order more in time for the Holiday rush.

Other plugs to be given away include a blue and green mack swimbaits from Pete's Mack Swimbaits. These lures are slow-sinking, measure 9 inches in length, and weigh 4 ounces. 

These lures will be ideal for targeting big stripers at the Cape Cod Canal. Best of all they are created by Peter Walker, who is a member of My Fishing Cape Cod!

The metal lure shown above is a 2 ounce Hex Lure created by the father-son duo at Bingham Lures. Hex Lures can catch a lot of different species on Cape, including stripers, bluefish, false albacore, bonito, black sea bass and fluke.

And of course I'm including a MFCC plug bag so you can store all these goodies in an organized manner.

*MFCC plug bags are also available for sale by clicking here. Use discount code LABORDAY to get 20% off + FREE SHIPPING! 
Offer expires this Friday September 11th.

The MFCC plug bag easily holds the large lures often used when fishing the Cape Cod Canal for big bass. The bag will also fit most of the lures used around Cape when targeting bluefin tuna.

Also included is a Depalma Slider, created by Alan's Custom Lures, and donated as a giveaway item by MFCC member Alex Cadete.

Just like the FRANTIC, this lure was originally included in a past giveaway, but was returned to me because the winner thought it was too beautiful to fish with! 

To top things off I am also including a 7 inch White Ghost Dartspin, created by Patrick Sebile of A Band of Anglers lure company. The one thing that seperates the Dartspin from other soft plastics is its durability. This soft plastic lure will even stand up to the sharp teeth of bluefish.

Entering this giveaway is simple. All you need to do is leave a comment below and your name will be automatically entered for a chance to win!

As a side note, in past giveaways some people received email notifications whenever a new person left a comment. If you were one of these people, then I want to let you know the notification feature has been turned off, so you will not receive any excess notifications.

LMK if you have any questions. Good luck if you head out fishing this week, and tight lines! ?

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!

  • maybe I’ll get lucky with this nice package …..was fishing all weekend no keepah’s …..but had a wonderful time

  • WOW a lot of comments . We all love your site My Fishing Cape Cod and your pod cast. I don’t know if I deserve this giveaway for there are so many that do . I love going to the cape and fish but like you say weather it is the kettle pods that I really love for trout or the Canal or onset pier I do not have to catch anything I just love being out doors. Thanks Ryan for all information on the cape I love it.

  • I have been fishing ever since my Dad brought me to the Goose Creek Bridge in Southold Long Island.
    Work and trying to provide for my family have largely kept me from my passion, fishing, for several years, and I have found the missing link with MFCC articles and videos…
    Thank you for keeping this Dad’s dreams of fishing, alive and well!
    Best Regards, and Tight Lines!

  • Hey Ryan,

    Great Website and newsletter.
    Looking forward to a mid-September surf fishing trip for pajamafish, Bluefish, Albies, & Bonito. Should this chance for the give-a-way prove fruitful, it will surely help with that endeavor.


  • Should I be the lucky winner I will absolutely try to hook my first bluefin using the FRANTIC Thanks Ryan

  • Finally getting back to Eastham after this wacky summer. Time to dodge seals and fish the back beach from there up to Ptown. This gear would really help.

  • I had a great night fishing some of the south shore beaches last night. No records broken however with all thats going on it was really nice to put a bend in the rod. Here’s to hoping the fall run put a smile on the faces of all our fellow anglers!

  • Ryan

    Wonderful job on website; I have learned a lot.

    Enjoy the podcasts too.

    So yes, count me in!


  • Thanks for doing such a nice job teaching about the habitat and the natural environment of the striped bass. God bless you.

  • this is so cool! I’m still learning about lures and such. went out in the sound on Saturday to try for false albies and it was pretty choppy… and we got skunked. all in a day of fishing though. love this blog.

  • Great package! Didn’t leave Florida for Plymouth this summer but some of those would work here or I’d give some to my boys in Plymouth. Thanks for doing these giveaways Ryan!

  • This is a great lure bag! I had one fully stuffed with many lures but inadvertently left it on the rocks one evening when I headed home. When I returned a few hours later to retrieve the bag it was gone.
    It would be nice to win this one with “My Fishing Cape Cod” on it and loaded with some outstanding lures!….Happy Labor Day and good luck to all!
