Today, I’ve got Capt. Mitchell Blake of Fish IBX breaking down the ins and outs of catching striped bass in Mid-Atlantic rivers.

  • How to position your boat and lure to use the current to your advantage and maximize your chances of catching stripers
  • When the best time of year to catch lots of striped bass is
  • How to find the BIG striped bass

Great guest… I have never done that type of fishing, but I want to now!

I loved his answer to the “what mistakes do anglers make” question. “No replacement for time on the water”. Amen!!! I’m 58 and we didn’t have 1/20th of the electronics or baits or information that there is now. We had to figure it out on the water This generation is so used to just looking on the internet or YouTube to get all the answers. That’s great for a lot of things. But you will never learn that “Feel” that you need in fishing unless you flat out spend time on the water in hundreds of scenarios, seasons, weather conditions.

Again, great guest! Thank you.
