  • Being Patient Pays Off!

    A common problem many surf casters have when using a plug or lure when fishing for bluefish and especially stripers, is that they attempt to set the hook too soon.

  • Repeating your Catch

    If you land and release a nice striper as soon as possible and return your chosen lure or bait to the water, chances are that you will repeat your catch with a similar size line sider.

  • Stripers Lateral Lines

    The lateral line on the sides of stripers allow them to virtually "feel the presence" of their prey before they can smell or see it!

"With my midnight stare recognizing the different darkness in this ocean, my senses seem saturated. The black, endless ocean stands up in front like a wall of thunder. The smells of my striper safari wisp through the tumultuous crashing of the surf....and I melt into being, all part of it." -Striper Mike
