Taking Florida Techniques to New England

March 16, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

Dave Souza describes how lessons learned sight-casting in south Florida can be transferred to hunting fish — even tailing stripers — on the northeastern coast.
“As I was walking back to my truck, I looked north over the flooded grass and saw three striped bass tails sticking out of the water. I just stopped dead in my tracks and looked with the aid of a very bright light over the boat ramp. The stripers were tipping down just like bonefish I had seen in Biscayne Bay south of Miami. It took me a few minutes to figure they were eating tiny transparent shrimp that were in the eel grass.” In the Herald News.
