Striped Bass. The fish that I had spent the summer of ’14 targeting to no avail. I bought fresh clams and spent many hours on the water. But I always came back with a healthy tan and nothing to show for it.
After the bass bite had ended, I noticed a fellow carp and bass fisherman friend of mine post up pictures of striped bass that he had caught in the last month. I decided to reach out to him and set a date to go join him on the Hudson river for some striper action.
We bought worms and claims. The worms are expensive. $1 for a worm. It better catch us some stripers!
And it did!
It was almost like carp fishing! The line just zips off and the drags starts ticking! But it was the only striper to hit my bait. =( And that was $12.
Nevertheless, the view, sunset and company were amazing! I still had a great time!
The bait stealers!
