Striper Bliss: Two Casts, Two Keepers

You know the numbers of keepers are on the increase when you can hook two of them on back-to-back casts. It happened to me Tuesday night while fishing the Bay from shore with a Zoom fluke on a small jighead with light tackle.

The two fish looked like clones. Both were healthy looking fat fish at 28 inches apiece. These weren’t the only ones I got that evening, as I landed another six schoolies. They were all decent fish in the 20-25 inch range, and all hit the albino Zoom fluke. Yes, I did try other lures but once again, the fluke proved to be the hot number in the Bay.

Surprisingly, I saw no boats and no other fishermen around. While the oceanfront has been crowded, the Bay has seen relatively few fishermen.
