Reelman and I had the best night I have had for stripers in about 5 years last night. We caught at least 30 mostly casting. A few on white perch and shad. They ranged from 5 to 15 pounds. I was really cool. It seemed we could have caught all we wanted and we left them biting. My arms are sore this morning.
Are you guys using bottom rigs w/ the cut bait? Curious as to the set up you're using for stripers in the James (like a bottom rig for the surf with a several ounce sinker)?
Appreciate the info. I've been surf fishing for 20+ years & recently bought a boat-have been putting it in at Osborne so I'm looking forward to fishing that area of the James. Caught some small catfish Memorial Day weekend but had little luck last weekend. Was using live minnows, nightcrawlers, shrimp & various artificials.
