Best Striped Bass Trolling Tips, Best lures for...

Jun 01 2012 05:54 PM | Capt. Garry in Striped Bass Fishing

Trolling for stripers is one of the best ways to catch striped bass and a fun striper fishing technique among the many other ways to fish for stripers. The best speed for trolling for striped bass is usually faster than most people would think. Striped bass swim fast and will attack anything that they can catch. Even though your striper trolling speed is fast, if you think about it, you are probably still trolling much slower than what the average bait fish can swim when he has a big open striper mouth behind him! Having said that, like any fish, striped bass eat what they can catch and often an injured or slow baitfish is easy prey. These might move a little slower and be the best food for a striped bass at the time. So, when you are trolling for striped bass, you may alter your speed from time to time if they aren’t biting and see if you can stir up some striper action. However, you may want to move to a different area if you have made 8 or 10 passes in an area and you have had no luck or perhaps try some bait fishing for stripers in case they are being lazy.

Fishing For Stiped Bass Using Cut Bait and Bait...

Mar 29 2012 05:22 PM | Capt. Garry in Striped Bass Fishing

Fishing for stiped bass using cut bait such as anchovies, sardines, and shad is a great way to kill a day and to teach kids how to catch striped bass.  There are other baits that you can use such as pile worms and blood worms that are among the best striper baits to use, but using cut bait is right up there with the all the other striper fishing methods.  Catching striped bass on bait is busy fishing usually as you find yourself catching striped bass that are undersized quite often.  Also, when you are fishing for sturgeon, you are fishing while anchored and you can bait a second pole for stripers, which are usually right with the sturgeon, and kill to birds with one stone!  Sturgeon will also hit about any cut bait that a striper will eat as well.  But, if you like fishing for striped bass, this is fun fishing even for the experienced.  When a big striper grabs that cut bait, you know it and some of the biggest striped bass I have ever caught were by using cut bait and fishing from the bank.  Teaching kids how to fish for striped bass with bait will hang with them the rest of their life and bait fishing for striped bass will keep them occupied as well while you enjoy your fishing!  Just make sure the first thing you do is teach them how to cut bait and bait their hooks so you don't become a fishing nanny!  Good luck
