  • 5-6 Stripers

    Today I decided to try live bait fishing. Got on the water around 8 am and tried to find bait. I have am 8 foot diameter throw net that weighs just over 12 lbs. After throwing about 25 times (about wore me out) and nearly 2 hours later, I only had maybe a dozen small threadfin shad. Made a move to a new spot and saw a lot of bait on the fish finder. One throw produced around 50+ blueback herring. In the tank they went!

    Set up in an area where I was marking scattered stripers.....put out 4 down rods and 6 planer boards in 20-25 feet of water. Got nailed by a short fish (maybe 17-18 inches) before I could get all the lines out.

    Fished until the winds picked up at 12:30. Ended up with 4 fish total. Kept a nice 24 incher for dinner this week.

    Ice jug is pressing on the belly making it look skinny. Live bait fishing is A LOT OF WORK!
