For anglers pursuing striped bass and bluefish, Cape Cod waters offer a great mix of flats, bays, rips and open water fishing. The spring striped bass migration hits Cape waters in May when school fish begin to appear in estuaries and in open water. Larger striped bass (10 to 40 pounds) will show from May through October. Light-tackle spinning outfits and nine-weight fly rods are the norm, 10-weight if we encounter stiff wind, deeper water and rip lines. We use a wide variety of tactics to ensure a great trip, novice through expert.
