Cape Cod Striper Report

May and June saw a mixed bag of opportunities on the fly.  There literally was only one good Buzzards Bay surface blitz  that I found, seven hours of catching... then  haven’t seen a decent one since .  Thankfully I found some good worm spawn opportunities from my kayak  and  The squid bite offered some solid opportunities. My big fish on the fly highlight came last week when conditions came together to allow for me to cast to roving groups  of fish, 28lbs. Overall the fly bite Has had some high moments but overall not what it should be.

They are work horses, I have no idea how many I have now.  I picked up one this Spring at the Bear's Den w/ spare spool - I doubt it had ever been used.  Sits nicely on the 2 handers

From everything that I have read and heard , the fishing is pretty bad almost everywhere right now.  MTK has some fish, Raritan Bay still has a good spring run since these are all Hudson River stock.  So sad to see what has happened as the fishing back in the day, was just so darn good, pretty much everywhere..

Haha, I thought the same...especially when they’re essentially carbon copies of one another. I guess the whole pursuing and catching just isn’t enough for some, I’ll never understand  that myself though.

And we wonder why the fishery is in decline.....

 

Rec fisherman “Were not the problem, everything and everyone else is”
Also rec fisherman “Let me take 35 photos of these 12 dry fish and make sure my fly rod and reel looks cool!”

 

Put the phone down and keep em wet. We’ll all still believe you even if you don’t have photos.

Ok guys,  The fact is I take one or two pictures on an outing and typically the fish are out of the water for an extremely short period of time. it’s safer for me and the fish to lie them in my kayak to unhook them. 

 

 So all of the armchair quarterbacks can go **** yourselves :)  Thanks for reminding me my forums like these have there fair share of balloon knots

It’s safer for the fish for you to keep the fish in the water as best as possible and not fuss with your camera. I usually just lean over, pull the fish only about 30% out of the water so that I can remove the barbless hook, then hold it horizontally back into the water until it swims off. Same thing goes for when wading. Maybe I’m just a tad more flexible than you I guess.
