11/30- 12/1 HRBT
« on: December 01, 2018, 07:16:20 PM »
I haven't posted here in forever! I usually just post my reports straight to 7 Cities Kayak Fishing FB group.

Anyways, I finally saw a good window of opportunity to fish HRBT last night. The winds were light and the air temps were still in the low 50s. I got to the bridge span around 1030PM and starting trolling on the ocean-side with a 1/4 jighead and Zman Deizelminnow in Purple Demon about 40' behind the yak. On the first pass to the island, I landed 3 stripers between 17-19 inches. All of them were healthy, fat fish. On the second pass, I got my one keeper of the night at 21.5 inches. No fish were caught going from the island to the base of the bridge. There were some bird activity, but no visual of feeding fish on top. I was marking bait until the tide started ripping hard.

Last year I only got to do this once, but I released over 4 keepers and kept a 31 incher. The year before, I averaged about 5 fish every trip.
This was the first trip this year (3 trips thus far) where I finally got a keeper.

Thanks for the report. I was thinking about cruising around there this Friday night. I haven't been out there in a while. Air temps are in the 30s. Does that impact the fishing?

Thanks for the lure info.  So the  6-7" skinny paddle tails mimic the bait fish there.
I think I am going to try HRBT once for the year soon
