Stripers - 2/3 Ain't Bad...

Finally got out fishing this last wednesday morning. The tides weren't my favorite for this north bay spot - last of outgoing and first of incoming. Got an early bite, but lost the fish in some structure. After searching and casting, got a nice hit and a spirited fight with this chunky fellow - a little bigger than what I'd been getting there. No more bites in this area, so I moved down the shoreline and shortly after hooked another smaller keeper. Wondering if I should release it and keep fishing - but didn't want to push my luck, hadn't caught a limit of stripers in a while.

Bite seemed sporadic, fish must be on the move.

Thanks, scaryfish, Ken & Robert! It's not a Spro, it's a Slevad ordered online - you can customize, and they hand-make them to order. I really like Spro bucktails, though they're pricey - I haven't used Pucci's too much, so I can't say. Somehow, I like the shape of the Spros, and the Slevads are pretty similar. I feel like it's more important you use a wormtail on them, really adds to the action - even though you might get more short bites.

Good fish salty! I too use slevads. You can pretty much customize them to look like spro. I started using them since I can no longer find mega bait buck tails. I have no complaints. However, sometimes their turn around time is a little long depending on time of year.

Yes. Spot on. I should order some soon, getting low.

Thanks, Glen - it was your last striper post that inspired me to get off my butt and get out. I've been spending more time painting watercolors than fishing. Here're a few somewhat fishing-related paintings:
