I was in fishing euphoria today. The lunar prediction was spot on! You couldn't imagine the amazing feeling being out at the point of the jetty with schools of stripers all around knowing Bubba was out there trailing behind the pack. The birds were in a frenzy picking off small breaking stripers left and right. It was a little eerie like something out of Alfred Hitchcock's movie The Birds. The stripers would hit pretty much anything I dropped from bottom rigs to lipless cranks so much so I had to stop using the bottom rig. If you notice fish breaking there's no point using a bottom rig anyway. As a converted light tackle fisherman i typically stay away from bottom rigs but if you want to know if fish are around you'll want to have at least one line out. All small stripers were safely released.
