I hope you are having a great Memorial Day Weekend! The sun is finally shining and the fishing has so far been very productive this holiday weekend.
The bite for truly big fish was on fire yesterday and Friday during the overcast conditions and brisk NW wind.
In fact, My Fishing Cape Cod member Jim Murphy took over 1st place in the boat division of our season-long derby with a whopping 49 inch striper caught yesterday morning.
On Friday I was fishing onboard our weekly group fishing trip which we offer to members of our website. Captain Cullen of Cape Star Charters put us onto fish from schoolies, all the way up to bass of 48 inches.
In the below 16 minute video report, MFCC members can learn:
- The areas where we are finding bass to 49 inches
- The techniques we are using the catch these big fish
- The specific baits and lures which are working best
- Plus much more
Today's bright and sunny skies may be great for the beach, but they are not ideal for fishing. I would focus my fishing efforts later today at sunset and throughout the night.
Tomorrow's forecast looks a bit more promising for fishing, with overcast skies and some rain returning for the afternoon and into the evening. I believe the bass will bite better during this predicted cloudy/rainy weather pattern.
In the spirit of Memorial Day, I would also like to thank our Veterans and members of our local police, fire and ambulance teams. I wish you a terrific Memorial Day, and thank you as always for your service to our communities.
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!
