There are still bass on the bottom south of the "C" Bouy, but there are big schools of blues to contend with. I have opted to fish the rips on Monomoy and to the southeast to increase my percentage of striped fish caught. Its still happening with the sand eels in the rips. You can look down and see the stripers on the bottom as we drift through. One can usually see 20 fish or more scattered across the bottom as we drift through. It really adds to the excitement level of the fishing, knowing right where they are. Most of the fish are in the 31 to 34 inch range at Bearse's Shoals with an occasional nioce 37-40 incher. The larger Bass seem to be holding in the deeper rips further to the east.
The weather is beautiful, with cool crisp mornings and bright sunny afternoons, perfect for a tide of bass fishing with light 14 pound test spinning rods. We have been catching at least one fish every drift through the rips, with many doubles and triples. All you will need to do is to be able to feel the fish bite and set the hook properly.
I hope to see you, Bruce
