The Kindness of Strangers
I haven't been out fishing much lately due to a combination of weather, mechanical failures and the usual assortment of tasks associated with moving our household. But that will change and last night I landed the largest fish I've caught in over two years. It would not have happened but for a long list of strangers who offered assistance for various things throughout the day. I'd name them here if there was enough space. So this post is for them, even if they didn't have the fun of landing this 28 inch beauty.

Off The Chart Topwater Bite
My son Jason got out on his buddy boat and the two of them put absolute beat down on schoolie sized striped bass. They both caught 20-25 striped bass from 22-28”s in under a hour. At one point my son made 10 casts and caught 10 stripers. Everything caught on Zara Spooks. Figures that I got caught in traffic on the way home and couldn’t make it.

Manasquan River Magic Hour Trip
Jason and I had a great trip this evening aboard Reel 17 with Capt. Stephen Moran at the helm. Spent the first few hours doing some light tackle fluking. Probably put 60 fluke in the boat up to #4 Always fun catching fluke on tackle better suited for trout. Once the sun got low, we switched gears and went on the hunt for stripers. First spot was game on as we encountered a savage top water bite with bass from 24-29”s landing 20 in a little over a hour’s time. If you look closely at the picture of Jason holding up one of his bass, you’ll see another bass exploding on my plug.

Patapsco Stripers
It’s been a pretty good season so far this year. I moved my boat to be closer to the bay bridge and shorter trips have me fishing the Patapsco river. I’ve been doing well around structure with crank baits.

#30 Striped Bass
Fished with my son Jason today aboard the Sea Hunter. Found the bass on top early and had a good pick most of the day with some better flurries as well as some lulls. Jason out fished me 5-1. His biggest of the day was this #30. His other ranged from the high teens to mid 20’s. My lone bass was around #20. 4 out of his 5 came on a 2 ounce white casting Mojo and his other (as well as mine) came on a 9” swim shad.

First Trip of 2019
Finally made my first trip of 2019, as I was itching to get in on the hot stripper bite. Went out on 4/17 in the afternoon. Fort to the grounds and found strippers blowing up over a large area. I ended the trip catching 7 stripers—5 of those keeper size to #20. I also missed another 12-15 bites. All fish were released and all caught on a 6” white swim shad.

Finally a fish!
It’s been a rough fall for my fishing since I’ve not been finding any stripers in my go to fall locations.

Between the freshwater flooding and the warm weather the fish haven’t been where I’ve been fishing.

I finally found a few stripers in shallow water including this barely legal 19 incher. With the water temps in the mid 60s, I’m hopeful things will start looking up!

Tons of schoolies
Amongst the numerous shorts, I managed 1 keeper and 1 would be keeper I had to release since he had the sores that are so common on our Chesapeake stripers.

My buddy @capt.-Jim was fishing in his boat right next to me caught a nice 25 incher.

Came up long (enough)
I’ve been coming up a little short on my recent Striper trips. Finally today I caught just long enough for a keeper.

I’m trying to learn the tried and true method of chunking bunker for Stripers since the summer has always been tough for my light tackle lure fishing.

My recent attempts chunking with a conventional bottom rig were not that successful, so today I fished a hook with a inline sinker.

This worked well since I could easily tune the depth of my bait to where I was marking fish by reeling out or in.

I fished the whole morning with my trolling motor spot locked for my anchor. I really think that motor spinning attracted them since I outfished my neighbors with conventional bottom rigs by 2-1.

So close yet so far
Great day out on the water with Jimmy and Clay. No keepers on that day. They were too spread out over the fleet of boats probably 30 plus boats in one spot. We were throwing the right bait just couldn’t get on the big ones.

Schoolie Stripers off Dock
Pretty cool that we get schoolie Stripers that run through our lagoon in Mystic Island. Caught this one tonight. It was about 13 or 14 inches. Caught him on a two inch swim shad casting around off the dock.

Hooking A Buddy Up
I set up a striper charter several months ago and invited my Stackfish buddy Capt. Blaq Sparrow. The bite was slow for the fleet but we did manage to catch 3 stripers with Capt. Blaq (pictured above) catching one of those. All fish were taken trolling Mojo rigs.
