Cape Cod has long been a vacation spot for both fishermen and families. The peninsula has more recently become a mecca for inshore saltwater fly fishermen, largely because it offers a diverse fishing terrain. Scouting and time on the water are undoubtedly the best ways to learn about an area. Scouting fishermen pick a few spots and fish them regularly during various tides, directions of wind, water temperatures, light, as well as times of year. Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard are home to many of the largest striped bass on the planet.
