I agree with all of the previous replys and would like to add mine as well. I think you need to be prepared when out on the water ecspecially when trolling this means "to catch fish you need to fish" not wasting time tying leaders lures etc. Always have your gear ready to put in the water and have extra ready to use. This includes a wide variety of bucktails, spoons and the plastics. Have you rods and reels in top shape. Having a good depth/fish finder is a must always looking at the bottom for any contours shelfs or variations in depth of the water. Once you find these areas most of the time you will find fish escpecially when they are scattered. Keep working the area and slow up when going over a drop off to get the lures to fall in the zone. We all seem to have our honey holes we frequent or start at and work away from, keep records of spots you travel over and find. A GPS works great for this. When trolling, have your lures set at diffrent depths and use diffrent colors to see what is their favorite. Once caught you have a responsibility to treat your catch with respect and if releasing speed up the photos to return the fish to live and to be caught another day. The most important part a fisherman can do is take his kids and friends along and share the excitement so they to can one day pass this wonderful sport on also. Each day I fish I learn something new and I think this is what drives me to fish.

Being able to hop from rock to rock, cove to cove, point to point, make 1000 casts, hold your balance on crooked slimy rocks while being crashed by waves all night long after a long days work with no food and very little coffee.

humility!
when you think you got it: you just lost it!
i have never been so humbled by some of the unlikely individuals and friends i have made along the way. if you ask anyone, i am quiet and aloof in a sense, cause i never know who the f%$# is gonna straighten me out about something. so yes, i know a little about alot and alot about nothin. but one thing is certain > i am the best there is!

The ability to adapt,too many fishermen make the mistake of following the "rules" set by other anglers.The fish make the rules,find what works for you.

There are a couple of things that I think make a good striper fisherman, but in general these are the same attributes that make for a solid individual.

Tenacity: Striper fishing is tough at time and you have to put your time on the water, you must be willing to get skunked for hours knowing that it could change.

Endurance: Long hours are usually my tenure when I go out so being able to fish for 12-16 hours and not be destroyed is pretty key.

Respect: Respect for the enviornment, your fellow fishermen, and most importantly respect for yourself.

Commitment: One of the reasons many beginners get so frustrated is because you can't expect to have a "big blast" if you only go 2 hours a week, sure you might get into one by chance but the best striper fishermen have commited their weekends for years on end to get where they are.

Situational Awareness: A lack of such could kill you surf casting, you need to be aware of your surrondings. Not only from a safety prespective but also paying close attention to whats going on around you will help you catch fish.


The above items and some motivation and I say that makes a pretty good striper fisherman and a good person in general. I would also agree that if you don't have the heart for the sport, TAKE UP BOWLING, you'll do better. You have to want it to win it!


Regards,

Jon.

The two things that make a striped bass fisher man good, and have a good time is either catching a good amount of fish. Or drinking alot of beer while trying and just having a quality time with a friend instead

Catching a fish without injuring yourself, someone else or the fish.
Putting your family priorities and responsibilities first.
Keeping a low profile, an open mind, a closed mouth, a soft touch and a quiet ear.
Not sure if these attributes will make you a good striper fisherman but it certainly would make me enjoy fishing with you.
