Pound-for-pound, the striped bass fights harder than almost any other fish in the sea, with
the exception of possibly a bluefish. Although these little schoolies may have seemed like
little sport, I used an ultralight outfit designed to make bluegills feel like bluefins. As
I've said before, the right gear can make a big difference in how enjoyable a particular fish
is to catch. My outfit tonight created some real fun sport for these plucky gamesters.
My late start tonight caused me to fish past sundown, and when the sun goes down in the river
you can count on catching eels. I try to keep my bait moving at all times to discourage them
and entice the bass, but it doesn't always work.
