I gotta tell ya all that the fishing over the last couple weeks has been pretty steady and we're having a lot of fun with some decent size fish on light trolling tackle. Honestly, I love to catch stripers all kinda ways but hooking up with a big fish 150ft behind the boat on light gear is a HOOT!!!
You gotta stay tight and let the rod do the work making sure everything is smooth and steady... my crews last week listened up and did very well with the light gear.
We found bass to 30+lbs on several area reefs during the calm half moon tides and they all came from ledges at 20-25ft in depth. Bubblegum tubes are till getting it done!
Here's some vids and pics...
