Captain's Focus

Posted on September 27, 2019 Striperfest in Falmouth on Saturday Over 3,000 striper anglers will be converging on Cape Cod for Saturday’s Striperfest as Striper Cup awards will be passed out and an outboard rig will be drawn for. The location for the noon event is Marine Park,  180 Scranton Ave., Falmouth. Google striperfest 2019 for an  admission discount and driving directions plus attractions. Capt. Vinny Vetere won the Striper Cup once again with his Katfish from Great Kills, though this time it was by a narrow margin. Vetere hasn’t been fishing this week, but will get back at it next week when he’s open for charters or individuals. The Golden Eagle from Belmar saw blues splashing today, but they were very hard to jig. I was happy to see the big swell down and the waters clear at local beaches this morning. My first cast with a Yo-Zuri Mag popper  was hit by a 2-pound bluefish almost in the wash. I knew I was in trouble after I released the blue as a fish on the first cast is almost invariably the kiss of death. Sure enough, I didn’t even raise another fish in good conditions.  The same thing happened recently to Joe Blaze when his first cast with a fly in  Shark River  produced a school striper — and there was never another touch. The Jamaica from Brielle has added a Saturday night bluefish trip at 7:30 p.m. The Paramount from Brielle is running daily at 6:30 for porgies and triggerfish except for a Tuesday ling trip. When the sea bass season opens on Oct. 8 they’ll switch to that fishing. The weather forecast took a turn for the worse as south winds tomorrow are 10-15 knots but with gusts to 25. The prizes are piling up for Nick Honachefsky’s Barrier Islands Beach Brawl that will be contested on Oct. 11 and 12. Nick has received so many prizes from manufacturers that he’ll be giving many away as door prizes. Following is his  current list: ULTIMATE DOOR PRIZE LIST! Check out the goods below.
