Plymouth High Hook Striper Tournament

In case you haven’t heard, Seven Stripes is partnering up with the dudes that brought you the Plymouth High Hook Striper Tourney. One of the best striper tournaments in the area is back, and we’re ready to crown the Plymouth High Hook. You’re not going to want to miss it this year.

I love fishing tournaments. There’s just something about the competitiveness, the “chatter” over the VHF that so often fills the duration of the tournament, or the feeling that every fish we fight has the possibility to win us the title. Fishing a tournament adds a great wrinkle to something we already love to do: fish for stripers.

A tournament like the Plymouth High Hook is perfect. It happens during the single best time in the season to catch big fish in Cape Cod Bay. It’s a one-day tournament, so you don’t feel pressured to put in multiple 12-hour days trying to keep up with leaderboard. And the afterparty…let me just say that it’s one of the best parties of the year. If you’re a boat angler in the South Shore or Cape area, you need to be fishing the centerpiece striper tournament in Plymouth and Cape Cod Bay.

The three heaviest bass submitted by teams will place, but only the top fish will win. First place will be awarded to the team with the single heaviest striper and will win a cash prize, a sweet “High Hook” plaque, and unprecedented bragging rights. We’ve got loads of other great prizes that we’ll be giving away, too.

At only $300 per team, the Plymouth High Hook is a great low-stakes, family friendly tournament during one of the hottest times of year for striped bass in Cape Cod Bay.

As always, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Beauhawks Foundation, a charity near and dear to many of the participants. To learn more about the foundation, visit

In the spirit of conservation, we recommend teams only retain and submit fish with a legitimate shot at winning. Participants are urged to only bring one bass per team to the weigh-in. Remember, the Plymouth High Hook will only award prizes to the three single heaviest bass submitted. This is the spirit of a “high hook” tournament.
