Re: Staten island Striper action
FINALLY!!!!! A BASS!!!!!! Hooked into a nice 17 pounder last night on a bunker chunker. Bunker pods were popping all over the place from 3PM to at least midnight, they finally started to get hit around 9 which is when I hooked into my bass.... Unfortunately I gut hooked him but I took him home for a nice mothers day dinner for my mom. When I cleaned him out he was really a really clean fish but the stomach was empty... which I found to be a little weird with all the bunker in the water. Maybe he regurgitated whatever he had in his belly during the fight, which I may say was pretty intense for a 17lb fish. He had my reel screaming on his 3 runs. Beautiful fish that I wiss I could have let go but I thanked him for his meat and ended it quickly, no fish will ever suffer with me at the end of the rod!
Catch & Release....
