We have been lucky enough to be on an amazing striped bass blitz this week. The bite has mainly been during the am hours along the 3 mile EEZ line. The bite has been in different areas everyday but once you locate the schools with your sounder it has been game on.
Today we had 50.5 degree water temps and got up on the troll late due to freezing temps and hopes for a little drop in the wind from 30 to 20 out of the west and we got it. Luckily I had a few friends who were on the fish already so we sprinted there and got on the troll. We had fairly consistent action the end of the morning hours picking up 9 keeper bass (and releasing most) up to 32 pounds. Most fish were on the chartreuse Mojos but we did catch a few on Stretch 30 plugs. No record today, but back at it again tomorrow. The west wind definitely ruined the water clarity, but luckily it didn’t effect the fishing. Hopefully the 20-30 west wind will be a little forgiving tomorrow.
