Nobska Light Striped Bass – June 18, 2016


Jake Curley of Jakamo Sportfishing Charters out of Green Pond caught this 28-pound bass in the Stars & Stripers Charity tournament last weekend. Here’s his details on the catch:

“The fish was caught at Nobska light on an east tide. It was caught on very light tackle using a Quantum Cabo 50 spooled with 20lb power pro, we used a 30lb florocarbon leader with a 6/0 circle hook rigged with a live eel. I saw a fish roll on some bait so I took my weight off and tossed the eel in the general area of the fish. Within seconds we were tight. The fight lasted almost 20 minutes on such light tackle. Once the fish was in the boat we knew we just locked ourselves in for biggest bass in the tournament for the 4th year in a row.”
