Big Striped Bass Pullage On My Little Jet Ski!

1 post in this topic


Yesterday morning my friend Rob and I towed our rigged up jet skis from Poquoson Va. to Kiptopeke State Park and dropped in at the Concrete Ships of the Eastern Shore.

It hurts paying the $16 toll each way plus the $8 ramp fee and about $20 round trip for gas. That’s $60 before I even touch the water!

On the positive side, I did not have to run across the bay in fog, rain, 2-3 foot chop and I only burned 2 gallons on my jet ski.

We fished a couple miles off of the ships in light-medium rain and 40 degree temps. The 10-15 SW winds gave us a steady drift for eeling.

Very slow fishing, but as luck would have it, a big Striped Bass took off with one of the eels that I had in right next to my ski.

He gave me a nice run for my money turning my ski around twice before getting close enough for me to net. He was solidly hooked in the upper lip.

We stayed out another 1 1/2 hours, hoping for another fish for Rob but it was not meant to be.

Saw one lone Kayaker on the lee side of the ships looking for a big one. There were also several boats around the area.

I weighed the Striped Bass I caught at Bull Island Outdoors in Poquoson, it went 42 1/2 pounds. My largest this season!

Well worth a couple hours on the water on my jet ski in the rain. I had everything cleaned up and put away by dark. For dinner I pan seared some thick Striper steaks in Herb Garlic marinade for dinner.

Here are some pictures.
