Winter Landbased Stripers In Ocean City Maryland
We could hear birds in the distance working the water down at the west end of the bridge so we packed up our gear and headed that way on foot.
Teammate Ellisa spotted a giant school of striped bass under one of the lights and came and grabbed the rest of the team like the legend that she is before even casting. It didn't take long before we were rocking bass with hooksets left and right. We figured out the sauce was casting up current letting the lure sink to the bottom quickly making contact and slowly drifting it bumping bottom now and then.
Around 3 a.m. it turned into an all-out blitz on the north side of the bridge giant schools of peanut bunker were being destroyed by hordes of striped bass. The surface of the water was erupting with fish jumping clean out, striped bass flashing everywhere. Birds working the bait balls. It was totally epic but the most significant part of it all was us 3 were the only souls around.

We were all rocking 30lb Bullbuster braid with 50lb Bullbuster mono topshot which never fails and always performs stellar. We did come prepared and the hand warmers we brought pretty much saved us. Come 6 a.m. when the bite had died down we were all still super stoked laughing and cracking jokes. We had all caught countless bass and the girls had broken their previous personal best.
