It seems that the past week or so from the surf the bass have been acting, well, a bit different. I've had at least 5 occasions where the bass have hit my bait and then run straight at the beach. By the time I reel in my slack to set the hook they're gone. Now my question is this. I know with freshwater fishing when a bass hits the bait it tends to head back in the direction it came from. It's current "home" so to speak. Do you think that it's the same with the stripers? Are they in closer to shore and going out to get my bait, then heading back to their spot? It's been quite frustrating because as I've said, this has happened numerous times. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. I'm wondering if I should be focusing a little more attention on the suds. Thanks in advance guys!
