Catching Striped Bass
"The striped bass is one of the best game fishes found on the Atlantic coast and may be caught from Nova Scotia to the Gulf of Mexico. It sometimes reaches a weight of sixty pounds, but those taken in brackish water at the river mouths usually weigh only from three to ten pounds. It is found mostly along rocky shores. It is taken by surf casting all summer long, but the fishing is best in August and September. Shedder crab is used mostly for bait also eel tail and blood worms, but menhaden, shrimp, etc., will also catch them and in the South mullet is used successfully. For fishing in brackish water a regular black bass bait rod, a twisted linen line and a 2/0 Sproat hook is commonly used. A good sized reel and a long line are always safest. The striped bass is a desperate fighter.
