Tues the 25th. we made a attempt at fishing commercially off of Monomy. Although some of the other boats in the fleet were doing well, we didn't. Managing to catch several shorts, we ended our day with 4 - 34+" Bass. Wednesday the 26th back to Monomy we headed, shortening our wire to 200'and changing to pink jigs we were soon to limit out ! Well that's what we had thought ! The weather kicked up on us forcing us into Cape Cod Bay. Spotting many birds working offshore, we decided to see what was up. To my surprise, the birds were working over breaking Stripers. Casting some of my home made creations, we caught numerous Bass in the 30-33"range. There were some commercial size Bass mixed in, and we landed 3 of them. As my luck has it, Commercial season ended that day. Thursday, was the day it would explode for us. After a strong north wind Wednesday night, we worked the beach off Sandy Neck. Tube and worm, was our method of catching and releasing over 35 Srtipers in the 25-40# range. Go to figure, commercial season ends and we load up. One nice thing to see was, a 8yr. old catch 2 bass over the 30# mark. He and his dad were not doing so well, so we decided to give him one of our rod setup's. They didn't have leadcore, so we loaned him one of ours. It was a treat for all of us to watch him struggle with these large fish on light tackle. Back on the water Tues. Will update later this week. Hope the fish stay where we had left them !
