Your Quarry
Trophy Striped Bass

Capt. Bruce specializes in the hunt for truly TROPHY STRIPED BASS taken on light to medium tackle both day and night. The pursuit of big stripers has been an obsession with Capt. Bruce for over 30 years. He knows when the big fish are in and how and where to catch them. Most importantly, he wants you to catch them! Large bass (some each year over 50 pounds) are taken by trolling, casting plugs or eels, and also drifting with live or dead baits. 

Each and every time the "OTTER" leaves the dock Capt. Bruce is on the hunt for record class bass and your "Bass of a lifetime". If you are after your own personal "BEST" or a record Striped Bass, then your chances are greatly increased when you climb aboard the "OTTER: with Capt. Bruce and his crew.

Methods using Medium-Light Tackle:

Trolling - NO WIRE LINE - Capt. Bruce believes his methods for trolling, Baits, Tubes or Lures with braided or lead lines are more relaxing, more effective and just plain more fun than "jerking wire" or trolling huge umbrella rigs!

NOTE: Capt. Bruce's favorite method is trolling his own hand-made lure called the "OTTER TUBE". 90 plus percent of the OTTER's record catches where caught by using these tubes.

Drifting-Live baits and lures
Casting-Plugs and baits

Capt. Bruce will provide all tackle and bait, he will also fillet and package your catch.

Your safety and enjoyment are the top priorities.

Due to Coast Guard regulations responsible beer or wine drinking is okay and of course no illegal drugs allowed. Please NO Glass containers!!!

A deposit is required to book the trip. Deposit will be refunded only if the trip is cancelled by the captain and a new date cannot be arranged.

--Don’t let that big fish take the rod from you – they never give them back !
