Re: What kind of striper fishing do you do?

The poll is pretty much split right down the middle. Boat vs. Shore.

I fish mainly from the shore, rocks. Like to fish from the boat but don't always have access to one. Plum island, Cape Cod-Bass River, the Canal...etc.usa2.gif

Most of my striper fishing is done in the ct river during the spring run (Enfield dam area) I just started fishing RI breachways a year or 2 ago before that I did some chunking off docks. (still learning the ropes) any info is greatly appreciated

Every striper I've caught was from the bank or while wading the American River, down stream of Sacrament State College (and that's as close as I'll mark that honey hole).

I spin fish with a weighted 5" Rapala minnow and have had great success.

My son and I mainly fish jettys mostly at night. We use bucktails, swimbaits and some plugs. This year we are going to try surfcasting big plugs and sluggos from Maryland up the coast to NJ and again mainly at night.

Re: What kind of striper fishing do you do?

:mad:I would have been fishing from a boat in the Hudson this year. But I took someone's word that the boat I bought didn't leak, and that the motor ran like a top. BUT UNFORTUNATELY FOR TRUSTING ANOTHER STRIPER MEMBER, I GOT SCREWED ROYALLY !!!!!!!!! I took the motor to a marine dealer near me, and was told that there was no way it ran with the electrical all screwed up! Apparently the coil or stator was installed wrong and was chewed up by the fly wheel, which in turn burned up the majority of the unit. As for the boat, I was told it didn't leak! I pulled the floor in prep of cleaning the boat up and redoing it with fresh paint. Filled it up to the rivet line, and low and behold what do I find?? Over 64 motherf*ckin leaks all the way around the boat. Now the guy says that I screwed it up because of not wanting to do the restoration work on it, so I could get out of the deal. He won't take the boat back either. He said, "part it out and get your money back that way, I don't care!" Talk about getting f*cked and not liking it. I really hope that this guy is happy with screwing over another member of Stripers and sleeps real well at night ! Karma is a BITCH, and he will get his!

Wow, im really sorry to hear that man. I am looking at boats right now on craigslist and I will need to be extra careful myself. Always get her in the water and run the motor first is the lesson here I guess.

On a separate note: Can anyone tell me how to rig Live Eels properly??? I posted about it in the main forum but i don't think anyone who knows saw it. :thu:
