How-To: Walk the Dog Stripers with Capt. Jamie Simmons

The Salty Cape Crew head out in early June with Capt. Jamie Simmons of Buzzard's Bay Outfitters to chase topwater stripers in the upper Buzzard's Bay region with the Hogy XL Charter Grade Dog Walkers. 

Most often, when implementing a walk-the-dog technique, you want to practice a slow retrieve but today, the fish wanted something a little more fast paced. They were really finicky and a faster retrieve produced a reaction strike. 

"There are not a lot of small fish our here this morning," said Capt. Jamie. "The bass and bluefish are mixed in in this area but if you put the time in, you're going to be rewarded with some good quality bass."
