How To Catch Striped Bass Fishing with Big Swimbaits

On this day in the fall run of 2015 I am kayak striped bass fishing trolling 8 quot Tsunami Swim Shad bodies rigged on 3oz Hogy Barbarian Jig Heads When I am striper fishing you will see a very detailed explanation of my fishing techniques and what I do to consistently land big striped bass from my kayak Kayak trolling for striped bass is probably one of the most effective ways to catch bass I would cast my swim shad behind the boat approximately 25 yards and begin a steady peddle If birds were diving or fish marks were on my fish finder I would cast the swim shads and work them back to the kayak with a fast retrieve and frequent twitch I always try to hold my fishing rod while trolling since it is essential to set the hook yourself with these big swim shads Throughout the trip I typically incorporate an occasional twitch of the fishing rod while trolling and I would normally get a strike after the twitch Fishing tackle I am using here is Ecooda BlackHawk 3000 spooled with 30lb KastKing Braided Line The rod is a KastKing Kayak Phantom rod rated from 1 4oz and is heavy power This set up is available from www kastking com All fish in this video released either during the video or after a quick photo with my GoPro camera I fish from a 2011 Hobie Outback Feel free to leave comments on my page and tight lines For more information on kayak fishing in NYC or guided fishing please check out http www nykayakfishingguideservices com index html more about at How To Catch Striped Bass Fishing with Big Swimbaits
