22' Fishing Boat In Hardy
You will be fishing out of a 22 foot Polar Center Console, using the latest technology and equipment for striped bass fishing, (Lawrence Fish finder, Minn Kota Trolling Motor, Abu Garcia Reels with 7ft Ugly Stik Rods). During the spring, before and after the spawn of striped bass, you will find the Captain will often use Gizzard Shad, the largest of the three types of shad. Using larger shad will head you down the road to catching The Big One! During the spring we will fish the surface using float lines, freelines and Planer Boards. Using these methods of fishing better your chances of catching the bigger striped bass that patrol the shallows for bait. When fishing for Striped Bass, the captain generally use two types of live bait –– gizzard shad or ale wives. We use gizzard a lot during the spring to catch record size fish. When the water warms up and the fish go deeper, I use ale wives. You can catch both types of shad using a cast net. Gizzard Shad can be caught during the day in the back of coves. Ale Wives are to be caught at night where light shines on the surface of the water.
