Chesapeake Bay Striper Report

Spawning-size stripers have left the bay. Light-tackle jigging and chumming/chunking are producing school-sized striped bass and catfish. The summer season began June 1 and now anglers can fish wherever they wish to in the tidal rivers or bay, and settle into the familiar limits of two fish at 19 inches to 28 inches, or one fish above and one below 28 inches.

New Jersey Striper Report

In southern New Jersey, schoolie striped bass have been pretty cooperative in the inlets. In northern New Jersey, shore anglers are catching a mix of bass and blues, and while the trophy striper fishing has slowed down there are still some big bass to 40 pounds being caught on mojos, bunker spoons, and live bunker off Sandy Hook and in Raritan Bay.

Yesterday, a bird pooped square on the top of my head. They say it’s good luck, and I guess that’s true! Last night, @scottysevins and I went on the prowl for a few nighttime bass. 20 minutes in, hooked up on this beast. My pb backwater striper….A 36”, 18 pound certifiable cow. All caught on @bottomsweeperjigs !!! ✶✶✶✶✶✶ ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ #lamiglasrods #lamiglas #daiwa #daiwareels #tackledirect #hookedontd #backwaterfishing #catchandrelease #marshnation #salttherapybrand #stripedbass #saltwaterfishing #minnkota #onthewatermagazine #thefishermanmag #dinkskwad #saltwatersportsman #getoutside #drawyourownline #seewhatsoutthere #moronesaxatilis #teamsevins #ladyangler #girlswhofish #anglerette #fishbras #bottomsweeperjigs @bottomsweeperjigs @tackledirect @thefishermanmag @onthewatermagazine @crowderrods @daiwa_reels

release video of this 49 inch dinosaur. all fish go back no matter what. 90% of the time I only use single hooks whether it be a circle hook for eels or a jig head for big soft plastics. definitely brings the survival rate on the release way up. barely ever use lures with trebles anymore. gotta treat these fish to the fullest. only way to get there numbers back up. fish was only out of the water for less than a minute. swam away very quickly to #fishing #fishinglife #onlylife #stripedbass #striper #boston #bassachusetts #massbass #catchandrelease #released #cpr #spring #catchandreleasecrew #hobie #outback #penn #slammer #diawarods #proteus #bassfrittah #striperlivesmatter #cowcity #bucketmouth #onthewater #onthewatermagazine
