How to Troll Tube & Worm on Cape Cod

Some people think trolling tube and worm for striped bass is boring, and I understand the reasons why.

However for me, trolling the tube is exciting. Tube and worming is also one of the most effective ways to catch big bass on Cape Cod during the heat of August. 

Oftentimes when trolling tubes, the best hits come from out of nowhere, and occur when you least expect it.

That is exactly what happened to my dad and I in the video clip below, filmed last week at around 8:00AM on August 3rd.

In this video I am literally on the phone telling capt. Jason Cianciolo from Laura Jay Charters that nothing was biting, when suddenly we double up!

This sorta thing happens all the time when trolling tubes.

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!


  • Funny, while watching the video, I saw you pick up one and rod saw the other rod going unattended. I no sooner thought “his Dad must be sleeping” when Jake appeared to take the rod and and you said “He’s awake!”
    I always liked tube and worming although you have to keep an eye out for lobster pots in Cape Cod Bay!
