Stripe Bass in Cape Cod Bay

capt.mark - 05/17/2012

Well  Sunday, we got out for our first charter of the season for stripers. We got off the dock at 9am along with Capt . Dave for a two boat trip. We headed “West” since the reports for the ‘East” was that not much was going on….We got to the area of the Bell Can (Barnstable Harbor) and tossed out the umbrella rigs…red and black with spoons as trailers. Lots of people were looking for macks and were going to live line.The reports at that time were that not many guys were hooking up live lining…so I set my pattern to cover as much ground as possible to find the schools of fish t. We worked all around the Bell can, then headed towards the “Parking Lot” in 40 feet of water. After dragging the rigs..we finally hit for doubles…after working the fish we put a nice 31  in the box and tossed back a 25 incher….back out went the gear and again we started to cover ground…we continued to fish the rigs and hit for a few more shorts..and also found a few macks on the end of the rigs….as the day was ending…I heard that the live lining was not really working for the guys …so I was glad we stayed with plan…It was a great day.. a little col to start..but warmed up as the day went….all in all..I was very happy …great people, great day…dinner in the box….and we did not pitch a shut out…If you are looking for some great fishing give me a call…the bay is really heating up with bass…we ca make it happen….stay safe and think screaming drags….
