On Sunday May 21st I was fortunate enough to head out on the MFCC group trip with Captain Cullen from Cape Star Charters.
I arrived at the dock at 10 o'clock, and the group was already anxiously waiting for me on the boat. I made my way down the dock as quickly as I could, and hopped on board.
We had an excellent group of guys on board, and everybody was excited to be on the water. Soon enough we were jetting across the water to a spot where Captain Cullen was confident fish were holding up.
In no time at all, we could see birds in the distance picking bait off the surface of the water!
We headed straight towards the birds, and soon we could see striped bass popping up here and there on the surface.
We immediately casted our Hogy paddle tails into the blitz. It wasn’t long until MFCC member Paul Aldrich hooked up with a bass.
This would be the start of very productive day!
The fish were still blitzing on the surface (but interestingly enough) we had trouble hooking up. We tried again and again, until MFCC member James McCulsky’s line started to peel!
He fought the fish before managing to pull up the first keeper of the day.
