Nivens Striped Bass Bonanza

By July 10, 2010Uncategorized

The Nivens family displayed excellent angling skills on their two-shift striped bass charter aboard Tuna Hunter.  They chose two shifts, to ensure everyone, all ages, could enjoy some time on the water, and a a chance at high hook.  The morning shift prevailed in sheer numbers of fish, easily reaching their limit of 30-40+ inch stripers. Fish hit steadily on a mix of live bait and artificial. Chumming is difficult due to dogfiish – you will need to adjust tactics to avoid them.

The afternoon shift saw fewer fish, but Scott reeled in the biggest fish of the day, at 43 inches, and we let that one go! All around a perfect day, a great striped bass charter, followed by a great meal of grilled striper and lobsters.
