Mdwin posted a topic in New Jersey FishingI want to expand my horizons when it comes to early back bay fishing for bass with lures. The past several years I have looked to fish tidal flats that drain to 1-2’ at low and are 3-5’ at high also they have a nice current. The only issue I’ve had is that I don’t have any confidence that I will find anything over 25”. Early season how do you target the larger fish, do they hold on different structure? I usually do well by April fishing needlefish at night in similar areas described and catch up to 30” at night only. Early March what are the optimal circumstances (structure wise) to find a striper 25”+?
cadbao posted a topic in Massachusetts FishingThis month Ill be targeting stripers at a location where there is a bottleneck of action. During the nighttime outgoing tide, bait fish are carried to this bottleneck and the stripers feast. You can see the flash of stripers slicing through this bait ball. But considering the heavy action I wasnt happy with how few we caught last time I fished the location. I was using live eels, hooking the eels through the upper jaw and livelining them. Im wondering if there is a better way. Should I try a sinker rig instead? I was thinking about tying a weight at the end of the line and tying the hook a couple feet above so the eel cant dive for cover and is flailing in the middle of the water column. Any suggestions?
