Chasing Striped Bass
In this episode of Hooké, Charles Cloutier and Alexis Pageau fly fish for Striped Bass across the coast of Canada’s Baie-des-Chaleurs. Casting big lures from the New Richmond beach, Charles, Alexis and JP hone their techniques in preparation for Bass fest. At the Carleton-sur-Mer festival we learn the importance and history of the species in the area, while the crew introduce the next generation of angler. The next day they head for Barachois, a popular bass feeding ground known for a phenomenon known as bait balls. The boys arrive to a feeding frenzy and finally get a chance at the big ones.
