I met up with some buddies for a long weekend of chasing stripers on the cape.
Friday evening we hit the Bass River near the mouth. We found some fishy water, but no fish to hand. We did bear witness to an all out blitz with lots of birds working and some nice splashes underneath, unfortunately they were 100 yards away and moving away from us.
Saturday we met with Captain Keith of the Rip Ryder and he dropped us off on North Monomoy for a day of wading the flats. The fishing was pretty slow due to the east wind and lack of water. Here is the surprise of the day, My buddy Brian tied into this beast, hooked perfectly in the corner of the mouth.
It was a cool, foggy and drizzly day, but we had the place all to ourselves. The sun only came out for a half hour, and 1 good size pod of fish cruised by. Here are some other pics.
Even though the fishing was slow, it was great to hang out with some new faces who were really great guys. Did I mention we had North Monomoy to ourselves?
