Four Steps to Bunker Spoon Success…

I love fishing for striped bass. Casting soft-plastic baits on light spinning tackle is probably my favorite method, but it is not the best way to consistently catch cows. I also fish live baits on three-way rigs, drift eels under Redi-Rig floats, and anchor up with bunker chunks or clams. ...

Boots In The Surf…

Photo: Frank Goncalves In the surf, we rely on our feet, not a boat, to bring us to the fish, but too many fishermen skimp when it comes to their boots. I used to be one of them. Every season, I would buy a pair of bargain-barrel boots with the ...

Kayak Fishing For Fall Largemouth Bass…

I’m not exactly a freshwater bass expert and don’t spend many days chasing them, which is probably why I like to fish for them in the fall. Both largemouths and smallmouths put the feedbag on in October and can be easy to catch, especially from the kayak. October is one ...
