Fished today with Coz, Chip, Coz, and Zach in the ocean for stripers. Things started out slow but we kept at it. We finally found the fish and our search was worth it. We started out trolling and had four stripers over 40". We switched over to jigs and we caught another eight or nine on jigs. Almost all were over 40". The fish of the day was a 48" almost fifty pound striper we caught on a jig. Pro Tip: The more vertical you can keep your line, the more effective it usually is. This means reeling in your jig and redeploying as your jig drifts behind the boat.
