Giant Striper on Spook Plug | June 20 Fishing Report

Ryan Collins

If you have never caught a giant striped bass using a Spook, then you will be in for a surprise when it finally happens for you. The topwater explosion may give you a heart attack.

At 9:45am this morning, while fishing a beach on Cape Cod in dense fog, my spook-style plug got engulfed by a giant 46.5 inch striper.

The video below showcases how effective Spook plugs can be when fished slowly across the surface in the fog.

  1. Great video! Can you fish the spook at night like that ?

    1. Glad you enjoyed the video Tommy! I’ve actually never used spooks at night. At night I find myself using soft plastics or Danny Plugs a bit more often, but I would imagine a spook would work just fine. Same retrieve ought to do the trick.

  4. Great video and very useful tips on the spook! I’ve typically fished mine at a faster pace, like a pencil,. Here Roy seem to be walking the dog slowly. Is this how you always fish a spook, or is it just what the foggy situation called for? How do you compare it to working a pencil?
    In any case I’ve been in a lot of these fish spooking situations lately by boat and especially kayak. Now I know what I’ll try.

    1. I always work them slow Jim. I always work my pencils very slow too, unless bass are actively blitzing all around me.

      Definitely let me know how the spook works out for you!

  6. Ha !
    Lucky to have the camera rolling my ass.
    You were wise enough to be in the right place at the right time.
    That takes knowledge and forethought.
    That’s the skill.
    The camera would have been there regardless.
    Excellent work !!
    I tip my cap !!

  7. You look just a tad excited. What a great moment! Spooks would be effective in the fog at Cutty. Have to give them a try. Would you fish a Jumpin Minnow the same way?

    Reply
    1. Spooks would be excellent at Cutty, and yes I’d fish the jumpin minnow in the same fashion ✌🏻

  10. Nice fish dude and respect for always letting them go!
    Was just curious what rod you are using in this video?

    Reply
    1. Hey Nick,

      I was using a 2 piece 9ft Lamiglas Surf Pro XSRA1084-2

      Great rod, but I would actually prefer a 1 piece.

      Tight lines!

      1. Ryan,

        Nice fish. What reel and line were you using?

        Reply
        1. Hey Sol – I was using a VR175 reel with 300 yards of 30 pound moss green Power Pro, connected to 50 pound fluorocarbon leader.
