Live Bait Fishing

It is difficult to explain an obsession - only other fanatics can understand. When that big bass takes your bait and you experience your first runoff. . . you'll begin to fathom the passion I have for live bait fishing. You will primarily fish the inlet with a variety of live baits. Depending on the time of year, the type of bait and the areas fished will vary. Bunker, butterfish, shad and herring all make excellent baits and are often just the ticket for trophy-sized East Coast striped bass. For the best performance when hooked up to a big linesider, you'll be fishing custom made Stalker Outfitter's rods and Kurz rods with Accurate's Boss Twin Drag reels, a powerful combination for landing large fish.


Specialty Trips for the Flyrodder and Light Tackle Angler

"On the Flats"

Come hunt these true flats that create this pristine marine environment on your own. I can accomodate up to six anglers per day. You will be taken from dockside to the flats in my new 25 ft. Contender, which will be anchored out and act as a tender. Can you imagine yourself on a flat an hour and a half away from Manhattan's skyscrapers with a bass tearing line off your reel while a hundred Oystercatchers spectate. If you would like to be the first to track across a flat–then this is for you!

"Swoppin' & Poppin'"

For some time now I've used live bait for raising bass up for the flyrodder and light tackle angler with great success. Possessing a commercial Food Fish license this enables me to legally gill net the most enticing bait for this technique. Using 10 and 11 wght. rods with Cam Sigler Jr. offshore flies, custom made for me, you will wait with anticipation while large bass chase hooked bait close enough for the perfect shot. This is without a doubt a tremendous challenge and sight casting at its best.
