Capt. Mike shares a few tips for when you’re marking large plumes of sand eels and striped bass, but can’t get them to notice your jigs.
Pretty much everyone with a boat is hightailing it for the bass bite from Truro up and around to Race Point. Reports have been bandied about of people picking up 50 to 70 bass, most between 34 and 45-inches, either livelining mackerel or vertical jigging.
To avoid the crowds up around Provincetown, some boaters are working down off Truro and Wellfleet, where they are finding big fish feeding on sand eels and mackerel. At times, these bigger bass are pushing bait on top and the birds will give them away, but having a good depth sounder is a must when they are hugging the bottom.
Very, very quiet – but they have plenty of seals, quipped Connie from Blackbeard’s.
There are bass up inside Pleasant Bay, mainly schoolies, and the same is true for the waters surrounding Morris Island.
