Well, the big Striper have arrived for me at last! Went out for some trolling this morning and it was pretty slow. Decided to give a new Mojo lure a try alongside my bunker spoons after hearing about how great they are.

My first hit of the season was a big one, and it was of course on the Mojo line! After an excellent give and take fight i was able to bring her alongside the boat- around 45 inches long! Hadn't seen one that big for a while, nothing close last season. Alas, as I stared in amazement with my leader wrapped around my arm she gave a little shake of her head, and I saw my Mojo swimming along next to her... she looked up at me and took her cue, swimming off to fight another day! Will have to start bringing my net along from now on! Wish I had at least gotten a picture.

Lots of dolphins in the area, had a pod of 20 or so swimming nearby.

Well, Stu, you were going to release her anyway, lol. Congrats on the great catch. I hate those damn Mojos but they seem to work.

True of course Jillybird but I sure like to get a picture first haha!

I find the bunker spoons on downriggers a lot easier to use, but thinking I may try a hybrid- light weight Mojo's on the downriggers. Trolling a few Mojo's reminds me of when I had all that wire line out a long time ago... a lot of work to bring them in and check em from time to time- and tight turns are pretty problematic!

You don't need to use wire for the mojos. You can use regular bass rods with 30-40lb. Braid.

Moejoes are just another tool in the box. They work well sometimes and sometimes they don't just like other lures or even bait. It's good to be versatile, keep at it; bait, spoons, deep divers they're all good.
