Belmar Striped Bass Fishing

As spring begins to stretch it's legs, Stripers are stretching their fins. Migrating north from the Carolina's where they spent winter we are lucky to be located right in their path. Beginning in April we start to see some schoolie size fish show up that go after smaller bait such as jigs, poppers and fresh shucked local clams. We will either anchor and chum with clams, troll or drift with jigs providing there is life on the sounder. By the month of May is when the action gets hot and heavy. Huge pods of bunker arrive and right behind them are the lunker stripers. Whether snagging or collecting with a 20' cast net to fill the live well, these bunker are like cow candy. When bunker pods become skiddish we will troll maja spoons to get the rods buckled over. Stripers are targeted again starting late October feeding on jigs and eels. Striped bass is one of the most sought after inshore game fish for their size, fight and excellent meat quality. All catch is bled and iced down in the boats cooler. Don't forget your bonus tags!

We are prepared for combination of anything that is biting alongside another species. Trips are not one type specific, we are no strangers to accommodation and adaptability.
