Tackle Used to Catch Striped Bass and Bluefish on Cape Cod

The waters we fish in Cape Cod Bay provide some of the finest sport fishing for striped bass and bluefish, found anywhere in New England. Our season runs from the middle of May until the end of September.

The cooler waters of May and June seem to hold the striped bass inshore where they are active feeders.

As the waters warm, bluefish migrate into the area where they remain until late fall before they start their southward migration.

Fishing techniques employed by our charters on the charter boat "Drifter" as we pursue striped bass or bluefish, include spin casting, surface trolling, deep water trolling, and long wire jigging.

Whenever possible we try to use different tackle to give the angler the opportunity to try a variety of fishing techniques.

All rods and some lures are custom made by local Cape Cod fishermen and are well suited to the striped bass and bluefish we catch.
