Hey anglers, Capt. Joey Argento Jr. here.
It felt just like another striped bass that morning. Reeling in a catch from 50ft of water, it was heavy and with no real fight in it. Finally, when I had it thirty feet from the boat, I saw a flash of its side and that’s when the line peeling began. With the rod bent over, I held on as the reel screamed. I had just hooked into my personal best striped bass coming in at 27lbs fishing at San Luis Reservoir, a fresh water
reservoir. What an awesome experience!
I know I talk a lot about crankbaits, but I throw them more than anything else in the world. My favorite being Strike King's XD series, which has opened up a huge world for me, one that was very unfamiliar not too long ago.
Hi fellow anglers! Early spring fishing is finally here and it seemed like a great time to write a short blog post about tips on how to select the right baits for the early season. This is a short video review of what size of baits to start off with and how/when to consider progressing up in size during the fishing season, watch here:
