Stripers
« on: March 02, 2018, 11:22:04 AM »

Okay, so we are going to vacation in Maine at a campground that has some ocean front sites and they say they catch stripers from shore...what kind of gear for ocean fishing? I don't want to bring my bass gear and get saltwater on it. I saw a relatively cheap saltwater rod at DSG for like $39, Abu Garcia Bruiser 8ft. rod/spinning reel combo. It's a 2 piece which I'm not fond of but with it being an 8ft. rod that will make it much more travel friendly. Would a 190 size whopper plopper be the ticket here? How about line, would 20lb. mono be good? I have no idea what else they would catch but if you have ideas that would be helpful too. Any info on bait/lures would be greatly appreciated!!! We're not going until mid-August but never hurts to be prepared.

No matter how much we know about fishing there is always more to learn!

That combo would probably be OK for limited occasional light use.  I used to sell a few when I had the store.  There weren't to many issues with it for a cheap combo.
I'd think 20lb line would be OK as well.  When I fished stripers I used 15lb but I was in a boat.
I'd inquiry locally what's working or their choice of bait for the time of year you're going to be there.  Like all fishing this can vary by conditions.
Good luck.  I hope you can get one like this one or bigger.  This would be blast from the bank.

Enjoying retirement in the great Pacific Northwest.  I've turned into a fair weather angler.  Why do it today when I can do it tomorrow?
