I don't know I really enjoyed this kind of fishing. Judge yourself.

I have jigged for striped bass for many years. The basic technique is to drop jig the bottom and retrieve jigs in moderate speed or sometime very slowly, but I observed that many fishermen use spinning gear and retrieve jigs slowy while wiggling fast.
It definitely trigger more hit than retrieve steadily.
I got to test this technique for other species.

Looks pretty busy and hectic but I bet it is fun. Down here in North Carolina they use trawlers and nets and kill everything. :( :( I like how you'll do it up there better.

Parking lot. If you can't beat them,join them. How can you drive by a hot bite? You have to sample. :D

When I saw 100 plus boats, it was pretty windy day. I heard there are 400 boats fishing tightly when it is calm.

Boat traffic was very challenging...making catching fish more rewarding! Still, I caught lot of fish using my west coast jigs. Green and yellow, purple black and white, and Mexican flag color were on fire! It's amazing that they still would bite after being run over by so many boats,

Kilsong, great to see you on the water.
