November 2nd Striper Blitz Caught On Drone

18  comments

At 11am this morning I was fortunate to encounter and film via drone a big striper blitz along the coastline in this general area of Cape Cod.

I caught a few striped bass during this trip, but the best part was observing the striper blitz from above!

The blitzes began happening at sunrise and continued until I left around noontime. Most of the fish in this video were schoolies in the 18-24 inch range, with maybe a few bigger bass mixed in here and there.

It's great to see so many fish after the big Nor' Easter which hit Cape Cod last week.

I will publish more video and information later this week. In the meantime, please let me know what you think about this video footage by leaving a comment below. 👇

Best of luck and stay safe if you make it out fishing this week!

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!


  • Great video. I purchased a DJI Air 2s about 2 months ago but haven’t had the guts/knowledge of where the fish might be to video.

    • It can definitely be a little nerve-wrecking flying an expensive drone over the water, but it gets much easier the more often you do it! You will find fish in many areas all throughout the region, especially from May-September when there are more fish around.

  • That was cool! Don’t know if this would spook the fish, but if you can get closer to the water next time, that would be fun!

    • In the past I’ve brought the drone as little as 4 feet above the water’s surface. At times it has spooked the fish, but more often I believe the bass think the drone is just another bird. They aren’t usually too concerned with the drone at all. I have a lot more footage from this day which I’ll get around to sharing eventually. Tight lines Paul!

  • Wow! Amazing footage Ryan. I saw something yesterday off Chappy Beach in Falmouth late afternoon (I was scouting some areas to oyster on opening day on Saturday). Went back today with a rod in the car – same time but the only thing in the water was a wind surfer…

    • I can relate to that Bill. Today I went back to the same spot where I filmed this footage, and there was not even a single bird in sight. The fish this time fo the year are on the move and probably won’t remain in one spot for more than a couple days as they migrate south. I would definitely recommend keeping that fishing rod in your car at all times! You just never know when you might encounter some action. I hope the oyster season treats you well this year!
