I’ll try not to spoil it for you. Basically, there’s a lot of talk how the stripers aren’t turning up inshore. Tons of bait, and it’s going unmolested about it’s business.
The theories are many, but I question whether it’s a fundamental shift due to the declines in the cod that have allowed the stripers to take up residence as alpha dogs on Stellwagen. At least until the bluefin really assert themselves.
On the Cape, much the same thing. The Canal is deadsville. But the outer beaches and Monomoy are looking good. Plus, the rumors of bonito abound, but nothing I’m ready to believe yet. Figure within the next two weeks it breaks loose.
