November is definitely not a "prime" month for striper fishing on Cape Cod. Most of the bass (especially the big ones) have migrated out of Cape waters by this time of year.
The weather is also a lot more difficult during November, and with less fish around, successfully finding and catching is much more of a challenge.
So far this November I had been skunked, but that all changed yesterday morning at sunrise. As soon as I stepped foot onto the beach I could see hundreds of birds and bass swirling on the surface!

In total I caught around 10 schoolies which were all covered in sea lice, and the action was still going strong when I left the beach at around 9am.
It was a terrific morning!
Who knows what today's gale force winds will do to the striper fishing here on Cape.
Nevertheless I am hopeful there will be at least a few bass kicking around right up until Thanksgiving.
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!
