Lost at sea
I am a new member and I am little lost with this whole forum gig so please excuse my stupidity.
I have been fishing all my life mostly fresh water and have recently changed to salt water at the request of my son in law. In the last three years I have moved up from a 16' bass boat to a 21' WA with a 175HP outboard. I have been fishing the Raritan bay from the Raitan river out past Sandy Hook looking for big striper. I have graduated from the 20" to the 30" class fish but still have a lot to learn. I am looking for others who have the same passion for big fish and would like to know where and how they are catching them. I have tried trolling with umbrella rigs,(with some success) and bottom fishing with clams. Recently, I have also been trolling with some big crank baits and bunker spoons. I have not tried live eels or live bunker yet. Does anyone have any recommendations?
