Mid-May Striper Fishing in Cape Cod Bay
Here’s an instructional video filmed in Mid May in Cape Cod Bay where Capt. Cullen Lundholm and Capt. Mike Hogan share some tips on vertical jigging for suspended stripers in deeper water. In the video, Cullen prefers a faster retrieve with a Hogy Sand Eel jigs with an assist hook while Capt. Mike prefers a slower approach with a soft bait. Bottom line, the faster retrieve is great for targeting scattered fish and the slower retrieve is ideal for less aggressive, well-fed stripers.
In this video, you will learn tips on:
- Reading your fish finder
- A fast jig retrieve: Sand Eel Jig
- A slow jig retrieve: Soft Baits
- Positioning the boat to find fish
