striped bass on the fly
« on: August 14, 2017, 07:56:29 PM »
Caught 3 striped bass on a chartreuse clouser last night out in Rudee.  Tried trolling live bait and nothing was taking it, as soon as I started throwing flies managed a few small ones (16 inchers). 

*Caught using a 9 weight redingtion vice with a 9 weight behemoth, very over gunned but my 7/8 weight is in for repairs.

I have heard the blue/white Lefty Deceiver works for stripers, but not have had luck that way myself.

I caught a 17" striper on a chartreuse clouser minnow this afternoon.

Awesome!!  Gives me encouragement as I have an 8wt and have only caught one shad on it so far up here in Richmond, but at night I go for stripers very successfully with a Rappala jerk, but will now try clouser.  Its a bit more difficult casting at night I've found but practice will help I'm sure.

Night fly fishing takes patience and good line management (ie. stripping basket), but can be a blast.
