Default Cape Cod......w/ Pics!!!!

Went out of Barnstable Harbor yesterday afternoon for the end of the outgoing and quite a bit of the incoming tide.....schools of stripers ALL over the place, by the hundreds!!! Threw a white & red laughing bucktail at a school we ran into just after launch and it was smashed almost immediately. Didn't hook up at first but I continued ripping and twitching the jig through the school, quickly, and it wasn't long after that. Managed only one on the bucktail and it was if they lost interest almost immediately.....couple more followers, various retrieval speed/methods, to no avail. Switched over to a spinning minnow (speckled black/green), then a deadly dick (silver and blue), then various sized/colored sluggo's all to no avail..........but we were still chasing schools all over Barnstable Harbor. Finally threw on a blue/white pencil popper, my uncle busted out the fly rod (not too familiar with flies but he was using a white/olive fly) and things picked up considerably. 15 to 20 fish caught in all, mostly in the mid 20" range with the biggest of the day measuring just over 30." All in all a good day, perfect weather, water was calm for most of it. Heading back to Maine later today to fish away my vacation....good luck fellas, hit 'em hard!!!

Leave it up to Crazy WildDave to notice the scabs n' blisters on my knee....and YES, I absolutely tattered & bruised myself @ Biddeford Pool, gonna make some korkers and try again with eels @ sun up (I know, better @ night but its tough terrain down there) What's the worst that could happen, I don't catch fish and get home by 10:00 a.m......still better than the best day at work!!!! Hopefully more pics to follow in the near future........'Uhhhh......Dave's not heere man'
