How to catch stripers from the surf in nj?
Im a begginer for stripers. Ive done a lot of fishing just not much on the surf. I hear there are a lot of cows right now in LBI and I am looking for some good spots and techniques. Help.
Woo hoo! Stripers in the surf!
There are two things stripers go after in the surf. One is full grown pogies, the other is little tiny glass minnows. They actually go after grass eels, but as far as we are concerned a grass eels and a glass minnow are nearly the same thing.
Early in the season, the schools of pogies come in to spawn. A pogy is the saltwater version of a shad, and the large ones can get to about a pound. It is a very big bait. When the large pogies are running, the best thing to use (other than a live pogy) is a large surface popper. It’s best to drive around scouting for bait in the water. When you find the bait, you’ll find stripers. Cast the surface popper out as far as possible, and “pop” it back in.
If you want some fun, tie a snatch hook on and cast out to the bait. Snag a grown pogy and let it sink to the bottom of the school. That will catch the really large stripers.
Later in the year, there are all types of glass minnows in the water, along with grass eels. The baits are only a few inches long, and are extremely slender. When the small bait is running, use a small, shiny spoon or jig. A Diamond Jig is good, and a 2 ounce Kastmaster is even better. Cast out and work the jig back in. Again, look for baitfish in the water and try to stay close to them.
You can also cast a live eel (about one foot long) out and reel it back in, but they are something of a nuisance to fish with.
Whenever you’re fishing for something new, always look at the other people who are fishing. Usually the local people know what the fish are biting, so do what they do.
