StriperFest is held in On The Water’s hometown: the historic Cape Cod town of Falmouth, Massachusetts. Located right on Vineyard Sound, it’s the perfect location to celebrate a great season of fishing for striped bass and gather on the waterfront at Falmouth Harbor. The Upper Cape is surrounded by world-class fall fishing, so don’t forget to bring your gear and plan to stay awhile. Falmouth offers something for the whole family, with great shopping, dining and nightlife. Take the ferry from Falmouth Harbor to Martha’s Vineyard, or check out the aquarium at nearby Woods Hole. Mark your calendars now for a fun-filled weekend!
