Sorry if this doesnt belong in this forum. My good friend Mike and I took his boat out of Cape May NJ today for our first fall 09 striper trip.We set up to chunk some bunker in the Delaware Bay.We got 1 fish early that was 40".Then after a while realized why we dont like chunkin.Well its BORING. Decided to tie on our jigs and bucktails and head to the point.We get there and find some beautiful rips with some birds workin and nobody around.First drift I get whacked and set the hook on a 15 lbish fish.Next few drifts all produced fish with a few double headers. Now were loosin the tide and decide to do one more.Glad we did.I hook into a healthy 32 lb bass on my 1oz white bucktail.This fish was quite a battle on my lite setup.Took close to 20 mins to land the fish.I was usin an Uglystik Lite with a Abu Ambassador 6500C3 with 20 lb suffix braid and 20lb mono leader.Now before you laugh at my setup let me say that its served me very well over the last 10 years and I love it for fishing 3/4-1.5oz bucktails.I can cast this outfit further than any of my inshore spinning setups. This fish is my biggest bucktail caught striper of my life.I'll take a 32 lber on a bucktail/lite setup in the rips over a 40-50 lb chunk caught fish anyday.The fight is totally differeent. Was a beautiful day on the water with lite winds/calm seas/good friends and big fish on bucktails.
