Background
I have been fishing since i could. My dad took me when i was in diapers and and for years we fished ponds and creeks. Ive been fishing for striped bass for 16 or more years. Its in my blood. The lakes and rivers here are full of striped bass and hybrids. I want you to catch fish more than you do!!
Techniques
Normally put 10-12 live baits out on freelines and planerboards pulling them slowly with the trolling motor during the cooler months. As water temperature rises above 75-80 degrees the downrod bite gets going,the fishing will be straight below the boat in 20-60ft. When it gets hotter than that we will use downriggers with lures to target fish 40-80 ft deep.
