  1. Hey Ryan, crazy idea for a challenge: biggest fish caught on a hand-line! After watching your videos from Mexico and Costa Rica I’ve been tossing around the idea of trying to hand-line a bass in the canal (which I’m not entirely sure is a good idea). But handlining a bass anywhere on the cape (maybe the flats at night?) would be quite an accomplishment.

    1. There might be some potential in that idea Chris!

      A few years ago I actually tried hand-lining for stripers here on Cape Cod from a boat. It didn’t go so well due to my poor technique, but I think with some practice it would definitely be possible.
