I had Dr. Michael Nocito of Norristown, PA and Bill Cohen of Stratford, NJ out on a 5 hour striped bass trip.  We got an early start and made bait very quickly - with not much going on in the area after jumping from pod-to-pod.  I decided to move to the areas where we had them trolling the previous day.  Our 2nd drift live-lining bunker produced 1 runoff and a nice 36inch 21lb bass - Dr. Nocito's personal best.   The bite dropped off and it was time for trolling where we had a solid knockdown, and later had another come tight - Bill fought the fish for a couple of minutes, but it was a few headshakes and the bass came unbuttoned.  They went 1 for 4, and had a beautiful day on the water.
