Fished with Matt, Mike, and crew in the ocean for stripers. We caught and released around a dozen stripers up to 33". The bite has been consistent. Pro Tip: Get a good hook remover and learn how to use it. Over handling fish boat side leads to unnecessary mortality.
Fished with Chip and crew on Friday. We caught around a dozen stripers to 33". We had fish on the troll and on the jig. Pro Tip: When reeling in a fish on a mojo or niner rig, don't pump and wind. Steady pressure does the trick. Pumping just shakes the fish off.
