We finally took a much needed break this weekend and did a little Striper fishing. Got off to a late start and worked the ledges at Brownie's Hill on the eastern Shore side.
Had our limit of Stripers in no time. Fish were in the 18"-24" class for the keepers. Plenty of dink Stripers which kept us busy and loads of fun. We decided to run all 7" 3 1/4" Spoon Umbrella rigs in gold, silver and chartruese. these rigs looked and worked great.
Ran a total of 5 lines working depths of 21'-35'.Only 2 of us on the boat so 5 rods was plenty! Most fish were caught on the spoon rigs with a 1 oz. bucktail hook bait. Longest line was 175' back with 1oz. inline sinker. Closest line was 75' back with 16oz inline. Bucktail colors were red tip, white and chartruese. Also had success with the spoon hook baits w/Teaser tails.
It was a blast to get out there again. There are reports that some trout are still making a showing this year and the Croaker action is starting to heat up.
Offshore there are still scattered catches of tuna past the 50F line out of OC and all the bluefish you can handle at the normal locations. Twin Wrecks and the Jackspot.
We now carry a 1oz. line of bucktails and have added a 9/0 Teaser tail with deer hair to go along with the 6/0 on the teaser tails. Dont forget to sign up for our Captain's Club and start taking advantage of the savings. You can sign up on the "SPECIALS" page
