Video: Cape Cod Salt Pond Striper Fishing

In the accompanying video, New England Fishing host Tom Richardson and Capt. Dave Steeves of the Goose Hummock Shops fish for early-season striped bass in Waquoit Bay, a coastal salt pond on the south side of Cape Cod. The salt ponds offer some of the most consistent fishing for stripers in from early May through mid-June, and Tom and Dave have no trouble finding a hungry school. Along the way, they discuss some top lures, tackle and techniques for taking early-season bass, as well as good spots to find the fish.
