Learn To Fish with Captain Ron Murphy (2 spots left for 7/19)
The OAC has booked two dates with long time fishing expert, Captain Ron Murphy. He started his charter business in 1976 and has been fishing the waters surrounding Cape Cod for 35+ years. He specializes in fishing the rips with light tackle. Ron was a teacher for over 30 years and a long time member of the OAC. He is a regular speaker at the OAC and always willing to share his secrets of catching big striped bass out at Monomoy. This is a great chance to learn from the best. If you are new to fishing and want to get a jump start or an experienced angler that simply wants a great day on the water. We have the following dates all set:
Thursday July 19th
Wednesday August 15th
The cost is $125/angler, which includes: fishing with Ron Murphy on Stray Cat, all tackle and gear and the tip for the Captain and/or crew. Everything is handled, you just need to show up. There are three spots for 7/19 and six spots for 8/15. Please contact Patricia at the OAC: 508-420-4336 or [email protected].
Payments are made to the OAC.
Spots are available on a first come first serve basis. Your email or phone call will reserve your spot, but payment within a couple days is required to hold your spot. Ron will set the exact fishing times for those dates a couple days prior based on tides and conditions at that time.
If you joined the OAC to improve your fishing skills, this is your chance. Seminars are great for information, but there is no better way to gain experience than just getting out on the water and catching fish.
The Big One That Didn’t Get Away!
Member Henry O’ reports that on a recent bass trip to the Elizabeth Islands Henry Jr. hooked into a cow, but the line became tangled around a boulder the size of a car. The typical outcome in this situation is the line gets frayed on the rocks and the fish swims away. Not this time. Henry O’ dropped Jr. onto the rock where he was able to free the line and land the fish. It weighed in just over 30 lbs and was a nice entry in the On The Water Striper Cup.
