Ok, I finally caught my first striper...see other post. Now I have one more shot at the striped ones in LBI. We normally head north and try our luck. I feel that the boat traffic kills the bite. We rarely see hook ups. Last time out we hooked up after most of the boats packed it in for the day. We are docked near the 72 bridge. Without burning a specific spot can you guys please give me somes ideas of places to try? Do we head north? Do we try south? Drift, anchor?

What type of structure should I look for in the charts?

Thanks!

I'd love to help but I just haven't had good catches of stripers this year. I always try all of the creeks and any holes on the way out. LEI is hit or miss, seems bottom of the tide into incoming is best if you can hit it that way. Your in position to go north to maybe some BI guys will chime in.

North was kinda dead last week, better to the south. Still alot of fish north of us though, I'd try there first. I'll be doing that before heading offshore. Should at least be a mix of blues and bass.

We have been running north up to seaside park and off IBSP, jigging up lots of blues. If you are trolling try the White Bunker spoons or chartruse shad rigs. Last weekend could not keep bait on the bottom without the sharks tearing it up, from eels to clams. Seems like all the reports from up in this area the bass are all caught in deeper water of about 60-65 feet. Good luck, Vinny
