Excerpt from "Stripe Bass and Sand Eels"
by Ron Powers

Stripers and bluefin can get awfully particular when they are dining on sand eels and this can lead to a frustrating day for anglers. A buddy of mine, who has just planted roots in Sandwich, was pulling his hair out about finicky resident fish which could not be duped into hitting any sand eel imitators that he could find. On a hunch I threw him a pack of Bill Hurley?s Cape Cod Sand Eel, which are made from genuine sand eel oil and he clobbered the fish until all he was left with were shredded entrails of the lure.
