Live-line Striper Limit

Heard reports of bunker along the beach yesterday so put together a trip of Mike Tyas, Scott McCall, and Sam Melendez. Cast netted bunker with my new 22lb Percy Net in 40 feet of water. Looking at my log this was the earliest bite off Stripers on live bunker in my career. Had 52 degree water in the afternoon and made my drifts in 40ft-50ft, limited with fish to 22lbs. Bite was very picky, lots of pick-ups and drops. The most aggressive fish were the ones that ate the baits closest to the boat, literally once the bait hit the water they swallowed the baits. No weight hooked in the tail worked best.
