We boated dozens of stripers and blues! All were caught by jigging, If you have ever jigged at 3.5 knots for 8 hours you know why our arms were going to fall off!

Nice striper!

I'll post some of mine up here in a minute. I'm not big on jigging, I do lazy circles at Lake Texoma waiting for the striper to come up and start hitting the bait fish near the surface, the I pounce. Jigs from 1/4-1/2 work great.

Man I love striper fishing! I dont do actually fish for striper, I bass fish mostly but if we catch them schooling and hitting the baitfish at the top we go hit them with the bass rods, top water plugs and loosened drag.. :cool2:

I've never ate them, how are they?

Blues fight better then stripers and are fun on light line. But for eating i agree! All those blues were thrown back.

trolling is boring. Its alot more fun to jig and feel the hit.

Jig for the small ones. Trollin for the big ones. Around here they come in at night around the tunnel. You get a big hit from the 8lb flounder. I keep the rod in my hands and not in the rod holder when trollin. Flounder are some of the best tasting fish in the Chesapeake Bay. Try catching a cobia. :waving:

Big stipers like to hit live eels at night.

Big stipers like to hit live eels at night.

Depends on the time of year. In the spring their chasing shad and thats why they end up the rivers. They do eat eels but prefer bait fish and squid. If you open up a striper and check the stomach contents you will see that 90% will have squid and baitfish in the belly. Our biggist stripers are caught on jigs in 30 -50' of water offshore where their feeding. Last friday we saw a boat fishing live eels and asked then how their doing on the radio. They boated no keepers. We boated 10 keepers and all limited out. I have done the night fishing trips and have not been as succesfull. But maybe they were off days.

I used to catch Stripers on the Jersey Shore, from the surf, and just outside the breakers on live eels.

I would never fry one though, Wrap them in alum foil, dice up some onions and tomatos, smother in butter, and beer and let it steam on the grill.

you trolling with umbrella rigs? We jig at 3.5 knots with parachute jigs. Parachute jigs produce by far larger stripers then trolling unbrellas around here. Umbrellas produce too many blues.

It's not you either SLR...although you have some funky ideas on self defense, you're a pretty cool cat so it seems.

You cant keep anything under 28" here. Last year it was 38".

I can't remember what size it was other than perfect eating size. I had some smaller ones around 20" that I kept also, along with some sand bass.

Coveting over my registered Red Rider BB guns will not go anywhere.You'll have to splurge on the $49.99 and get your own..besides you'll just shoot yer eye out like ralphy and blame it on some falling icicle.
