• Striped Bass and Monomoy…Off Cape Cod

“ In 1978, a giant storm blew Monomoy Island—just off the elbow at the south end of Cape Cod—IN HALF.

”Miles of grass beds were covered with pure white sand from the outer beaches, spoiling one productive habitat but forming another. Striped bass soon habituated to cruising the clear, shallow water in search of warmer temperatures, not to mention crabs and shrimp, and perhaps to escape predators.

”People knew the fish were there, but catching them by the conventional methods of trolling or throwing big plugs was out of the question.”
