Starting in April, the stripers will be working their way back up to the north. Some smaller fish show up in our area, feeding on small baits and clams up at the clam beds, so using fresh clams, jigging with diamond jigs, crocs and plastics work best. Most fish average around 10-30lbs. In May, it gets hot! The adult bunker show up, and so do the COWS! Throwing a 20' cast net and filling the live well works best to keep baits alive, that way you're always ready for a blitz! Starting mid to late October all the way through December we go back to targeting Stripers on jigs as well.

There's nothing like fishing inshore with big live baits, catching big Stripers! Reels screaming and big fish hitting the deck one after the other. But don't let them fool you, sometimes it HAS to be "snag and drop". Or if your lucky, you can get them up top with pencil poppers. It's awesome watching a 40lb+ Bass CRUSH your bait! These Striped Bass stay in our area from roughly May through maybe the first week of July. Fish ranging from 25 to well over 50lbs! Photo 55lb+ live lining bunker.
