It's that time of year and big striped bass are feeding up and getting ready for there push to there spawning areas. Striper Cartel guide Chris C. Has boat some real big stripers fishing big bait in water between 15-60 feet with planner boards and free lines. We've had good success on both live bait and artificials. April will be our best month for putting trophy fish in the boat. We have a couple spots open in April, so give us a call or checkout our website.
