No topwater or jigs working...swimmers was the ticket
The red hot bite on topwater plugs that was so good only a few weeks ago has slowed down. I had to dig deep in my memory/spy file about a spot I found over the off season. I recalled this was the time of year, and location a video was made there. (At one point the guy that made the video showed up, and I had the sensation of confirmation) I had the same plug in my bag, and two days to see if I can catch fish.
Day one myself, and a few others just couldn't get a hit. I showed up early on day two, spending the whole tide perched on a rock...getting pulled off each time these fish hit my magic swimmer was a side affect of fishing with a tight drag. I could've loosened it but I noticed the other anglers with loose drags missed fish. This 25lbs striper was my first of three for day two...I was happy to release her. I was reworded on my next fish with my personal best. The final fish of this trip was a 21lbs striper, and I was done! Coming up to Cape Cod is always worth the trip even if I don't catch. I'm just happy to be able to put some fish on the rocks when it all comes together...Screaming Drag!
