Member Success Story: A Fishing Trip To Remember!

Ryan Collins

Last week I took a moment to highlight this recent success story from one of our members who managed this summer to catch his first-ever striper after many years of trying.

Reading these stories always makes me happy, and it helps to inspire me to continue pushing MFCC forward, and to continue growing our community.

In this post I would like to highlight another one of our most recent success stories, from John Patrick, who joined My Fishing Cape Cod as a member back in June.

This is a really awesome story. I was "pumped up" after reading it!  👊🏻


Special Thanks To The
MFCC Community

Hi all 👋

I'm a relatively new member to MFCC and am 2 years into surfcasting. I will start by saying this is such a wonderful community, and I have already learned so much from many of you - thank you all for that!

I wanted to take this time to shout out to Capt. Steve Leary, an MFCC member. A few buddies and I were headed to the Cape this summer to relax and do some fishing.

One friend had suffered a spinal injury and is in a wheelchair. This posed a few concerns for getting out on the water but Capt. Steve and Capt. John of the Lucky Lady II couldn’t have made it a better experience.

We reached out to Capt. Steve in advance, and he was quick to find us a boat that would accommodate us. Within hours of speaking with Capt. Steve we had a charter booked with John Carty (a trusted friend of Capt. Steve's) and we were in great hands. 

We had a great day on the water with Capt. John and his mate Blake. We caught lots of big blue fish, and schoolies. We also had the pleasure of meeting Capt. Steve before we headed out.

Thanks again Capt. Steve - you’re the man! And thank you Ryan, and the MFCC community for all the resources and great people available to us all!

I should also mention, that my friend is really looking to get into fishing however he can. He’s a very active guy and had a freak accident our senior year of college. He’s working in NYC and doing awesome for what he’s been through.

He has the passion for fishing & I think it’d be unreal for him. I’m a golfer and have him doing some fun stuff on the links with me when possible. We both work a lot and can get somewhat landlocked at times, but with all that being said, please message me or chime in if you have any suggestions about getting someone who has a handicap out fishing on their own. I know that fishing could potentially be a interest and hobby that he would love.

Thanks again!

  1. This is what M.F.C.C. is all about. Ryan grew up with an uncle who needed a lot of TLC. I’d like to think that this is a contributing factor to his compassion to the human condition. Fishing is secondary. How we all treat each other is primary.

  2. Great story, thanks for sharing.
    It’s great ta hear about people helping people
