MV local Joe Rogers heads to the salt ponds of Martha’s Vineyard to hunt for offseason striped bass on a mild January afternoon. Throwing 4″ Hogy Pro Tails from his aluminum skiff, Joe found what he was looking for by landing a 32″ keeper to finish off the day.
On November 1st, Capt. Mike and John Burns headed out from Sandwich Marina to chase reports of aggressive schools of bluefin tuna feeding on small butterfish, a great opportunity to catch 100+ pound fish on topwater spinning gear. Armed with Stella 14000Ws and Hogy Pro Tails, the crew aboard the Relentless have no problem finding, hooking up with and successfully landing large bluefin.
