Riptide

6/17-18 Rips, Flats, Blues and Bass

The last few days have been spent catching hundreds of stripers and blues from the rips and flats. Dozens of double and triple hook ups kept everyone busy and happy.

All of our fish have been taken on fly and light tackle. Many on topwater.  Hogy Lures amber original has been deadly with all the squid around.

 

This morning I spent some time in a large open Ocean ripline with standing waves at T top height.

I can't begin to express how well the new boat handled the conditions. I can honestly say, it was better in the massive rip waves than the old Contender was.

There isn't a trip that goes by that this new ride doesn't find a way to impress me more and more.

 

Overall just a great couple days with a great bunch of anglers.

Nice report Riptide!

 

How big were the blues?

 

I got into a few 4, 5 lbers last weekend on the Cape. Larry's tackle on the Vineyard is/was having a tournament with a few blues over 10lbs being taken. Hoping those gators start coming to the Cape.

No gators.  Biggest was maybe 7ish.   Lots of 4-5#s.   In 5' of water smashing poppers it was a blast.  

 

Would LOVE to see the 15+ show up!

Ah. They used to be called Ocean Mashers, being on the heavy side.  Is that still the case?

Nope.   They lightened the hull.  Still a beast but about 2/3s the weight.
