I had return client Ross Alber for his second trip this week and his buddy Ray on a 5hr Striped Bass charter. We started working the backwaters, and hooked 6 fish pretty quickly, keeping 4 for the table in the first 40 minutes of the trip. With the tide negatively influencing the bite, we worked closer to the ocean with both artificials and live bait. The bite was on and the guys hooked fish on every drift, keeping 2 more for the table while releasing 30 to 33 inch fish. With over 2.5 hours left in the trip and a limit of Striped Bass, we worked some of the backwaters with small artificials and poppers. 6 keeper Striped Bass and a great day on the water!
