Question Cape Cod Canal Pro ????????????

Just out of curiosity a simple question. I hear many times guys saying
"their goes a canal pro" or "the canal pros catch more fish"
What do they mean by that?
Is it because the guy as been fishing the canal for years and can get to all the honey holes with his eyes closed, at the right time of day, right tides, winds, moon stages, etc?

Some day maybe during my lifetime someone will see me riding on my bike up and down the canal and say the same thing :)

I know people who have been fishing the ditch since the 40's, and one thing they tell me is they know less every year.

Are they successful? Yes. but this is a dymanic and ever changing stretch of water.

If you want a pile of bluefish, Pro status may be attainable. But for Stripers, I dunno many who would consider themselves in that club. The constant learning is part of the appeal. They are always on a quest for more info.

JoeSixpack I agree, I myself have been fishing the canal since 1987, 88 and every time I go I learn something new, I love to talk to the old timers, and share info, fish stories etc....... the canal is my favorite place to striper fish because it is so challenging, more challenging than any other body of water I have ever fished in my life, conditions in the canal can change in the blink of an eye, and trying to figure were to fish next, were are the fish moving to, and why, I love that, the more challenging the fishing the more I like it, I dont like easy fishing because there is no skill involved, no challenge, I like to stick and move ill fish a stretch of the canal for 3 to 5 miles up and down on my bike because I know the fish are always moving due to the tidal waters and during the bike rides I study the waters, Ill see a hole that looks promising but might not be ready so ill note were it is and come back to it when the time is right, I might not catch fish on a good hole the 1st time come back later to the same hole at the right time and bang fish on, I love it.

Sounds like you like it for the same reasons as I do. You get it.

I am not a pro, nor would I wanna be. If I knew it all it would be a bore.

Do I have a Honey Hole that produces for me? Oh Yes. But that is one hole, on one side, with one tactic. Miles left to figure out on both.

I know one thing. I'll be dead before I understand all of it.

I'm ok with that.

JoeSixpack maybe we can hook up sometime and fish the canal if it sounds good with you pm me and ill give you my cell # I dont chunk bait.
I have been fishing the canal for 20 years and I still haven't fished every hole of the canal, every time I go I find a new hole to fish wow, now that I think of it that is pretty crazy.

I generally don't know if I'm gonna get down there until shortly before I head out. Maybe we can hook up. Though it's hard for me to plan trips in advance, right now.
