Wishin, welcome aboard

The charters mates should take care of you well. They want you to catch as much as you do. GOOD idea to carry on 6 or more "live" surf clams in the shell for a good back up though ;) . You will probably be using their tackle so bring a small stone to sharpen hooks. Dull hooks shall greatly reduce chances of catching!! Other than that, enjoy the trip & pay some mind to one who seems to be doing better than others ;) . Luck to ya!

You'll either be jigging, using eels (probably have to bring your own) or fishing with clams. The ocean fishing has been pretty slow lately but should heat up soon.

I would bring a supply of metal jigs and some bait rigs.

Watch out, many a time after your first stripper you will be hooked for life. ;)

Seriously though, welcome aboard. Pay attention to the mates on the party boat and you should do fine.

Hey thanks for the help,
last time i went it seemed that the people that were fishing with jigs (at least i think they were i dont quite remember) were catching fish alllll day and were also the first to catch. I was wonderin what artificial lures work best this time of year or if anyone if familuar with the barengat light area and knows of some lures that have been productave latetly. I am almost sure (at least last time we did but itsa different boat) we will use clams and eels.
THANX
TOM
I need all the help i can get i hate planin a long trip (long drive and long day on the water) and either get skunked or watch people catch fish. I am just tryin to make this a productive trip

Can't beat a smaller Hopkins lure. They look alot like the peanut bunker that are running out there now. Diamond Jigs are also good. Match the hatch.

Diamond jigs, cripped herring and larger bucktails will do fine. Bring a variety of sizes, you'll be fishing anywhere from 20-70 feet deep.

Striper...S-T-R-I-P-E-R...Striper. Lets start with the basics LOL, hopefully i spelled it right...when you get a little older email me and we'll take you out for your 21st birthday. I'll take you to delilahs for some land stripers ! Land stripers can be deadly !!!!!
Stick with this board kid you'll learn alot and if you can get a summer job on a headboat as a mate do it while you can before life, bills and the real world hits you. Have fun good luck.

hey thanx for all of the help....
AND I NOW KNOW ITS STIPER NOT STRIPPER hahaha.....(although i would prob trade a stripper trip for a striper... LOL)
i cant spell for my life....
match the hatch, i like that idea considering im now a fly fisher, and looking to get a saly water setup and a fishing yak(i already have one picked out)but my funds are tight ( i reallllly need a car when i hit 16 next oct...i want a yak so bad it hurts)
I would prob. already have a job as a first mate for a party boat but i dont have a beach house ( i have 4 younger sisters and well....it was rough at time$)
Really lookin forward to my STRIPER strip.
Keep me posted...
TOM

Take plenty of warm close even its a nice when you leve home.
Being cold and wet can kill your whole day.
Fish hard. Try to have a line in the water all the time. And dont give up .
Watch other fisherman.
Ask the mate on the ride out what to do.
Hopefuly he is a pro.
Dont forget he is out there every day and its his job to make sure you have a good time.
Call the boat tree days befor you go and ask them what they are having the best luck with.
Also ask them what kind of gear they are using.
When i worked as a mate giving the anglers good info made my job easy and put money the in my hand.
GOOD LUCK AND JUST HAVE FUN ! ! !

When fishing for Strippers, it is important to work the pole. Pop pop pop that thang.

Make me lose my breath when she slams it :eek:

I'm talking about a bucktail, already.

Catch 'em up bro!

I have one more question, when it comes to bucktail (or any other productive teaser) what color and size should i use and also what is the best way to rig one up.....should you just tie some on directly to a hook?
Thanx
Tom
