This may be tooting my own horn a bit much, but the responses I get from folks after a day fishing is the greatest. I get to be paid to fish with an assortment of people who, at the end of the day tell me that this was the best days fishing they've ever had. I love to put the rod in some young person's hand knowing that after the day is over they will not be the same again. I can see the exitement and joy in the whole families eyes as they share in their family members catches. I am pasting a email that I got from last weeks trip that is a typical response. For me that is what it is all about.
And thank YOU !
If you want to catch striped bass, book a fishing trip with Bruce Peters out of Chatham, Mass. on the Cape.
My buddy Bill Tustian, his daughter Amanda 15, son Andrew 13 and I went out with Bruce this morning and caught a mess of fish!
Amanda, who had never landed a fish before, began with a 37" inch keeper! That gets cooked tonight. And it went on from there. All of us caught keepers, releasing all the rest including my 39" and Bill's 41"! Andrew boated nine fish and none of us less than six! All in a five hour trip.
Bruce is very knowledgeable, a great teacher about fishing and the area, and a great guy to be out on the boat with. We especially enjoyed drifting down over the rips next to other, larger boats loaded with all of the right equipment who were being skunked, and landing (and releasing!) large stripers right under their noses just because of Bruce's knowledge of bait and fishing techniques.
Look at Bruce's' web site at www.spportfishingcapecod.com and let me know if you want to make up a party for a trip after Labor Day.
Just for you cynics out there, this is a totally unsolicited email, although I hope Bruce will take me back to the hot spots next time we fish together!
