5/29 Big Stripers and Seabass (REPORT)

Today the weather forced our gameplan but we worked it to perfection.  Scott is a regular and he always starts the trip by telling me he has faith I'll pull something out of nothing.  

Today we started with a hunt for larger bass on top.   The area had a fair amount of boats but we set up a nice quiet drift and by using the Navionics bathymetric charts we had an advantage.  Using Sonar Charts Live and Raymarine Sidevison we were able to grab a few fish including a 40" class fish in a Patrick Sebile's A Band Of Anglers Flying Pencil.

When the bite slowed we moved away and played with Seabass and school stripers.    

With the electronics helping dial us in on what appeared to be just a normal schoolie bite, we worked through the small fish clutter and got several solid keepers from among the rats.   

When the CHIRP sonar lights up like we saw it today, it's hard not to make things happen.  

Overall a fantastic day despite cold dreary windy conditions.   My guys landed dozens and dozens of fish each and will be feasting on seabass for the next few weeks.

Great to see the variety!

 

Questions:

If the sonar is showing bottom activity, how is it that a BOA pencil work on the surface? (Or was that a surface busting action play?)

If going for the bottom stripe activity, what are you using?

Different areas.  The popper was in 12' of water.   The other fish were in deeper water and Spro jigs did most of the damage.
