The sun was shining this past Wednesday when I donned my wet suit and entered the ocean for my first snorkeling session of the summer.
I still love snorkeling our local Cape Cod waters, despite the high numbers of full grown adult great white sharks in the area.
When snorkeling you never know what you may encounter, and this past Wedneday's snorkeling trip was no exception!
Minutes after entering the water I found myself surrounded by a school of 5-20 pound striped bass in their natural habitat.
I was almost literally bumping into bass!
All of these images were taken during a 5 minute period as the stripers circled around me.
I found the fish to be curious and inquisitive.
Some bass allowed me to approach within a few feet. I even surprised one fish which was "laying" in a bed of sea weed.
It was a surreal experience and I am excited to share the highlights of the trip with you in the video clip below!
If you would like to learn more about this trip, then please continue reading by accessing my members-only Extended Fishing Report.
In the Extended Report I will share with you more information about the spot (I don't reveal the exact location) plus information about tides and what I believe these fish were up to.
In the meantime, I may now be more excited about filming these bass underwater than I am about trying to catch them! Throughout the rest of this summer I plan to return to this area and capture more footage.
I may even perform some "experiments" on these fish in an effort to learn more about how they live and behave.

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!
