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.

or Lures with braided or lead lines are more relaxing, more effective
and just plain more fun than "jerking wire" or trolling huge umbrella

called the "OTTER TUBE". 90 plus percent of the OTTER's record catches
where caught by using these tubes.
