Capt. Gene Nigro of the charter boat Phantom, Tony Arcabasio, noted striper fisherman and creator of the Tony Maja Bunker spoons and tackle products, and Capt. Pete Barrett, IGFA representative, avid saltwater writer and striped bass fisherman will share their decades of striped bass trolling knowledge at an IGFA-sponsored how-to seminar set for Wednesday night, October 12th in Toms River.
Three unique presentations will answer all the questions you’ve always wanted to ask and include details and techniques, tips, tricks and tactics for trolling with wire line, downriggers, super-braid and mono. Learn the secrets on how to fish umbrella rigs, shad rigs, bunker spoons, big plugs, deep-diving plugs and parachute bucktails. These three pros will discuss tides and moon phases, trolling patterns, tackle rigging, marking wire and finding striped bass on the best structure. You’ll learn the time-tested strategies and tactics used by these veteran bass anglers to help you catch more stripers this fall.
Admission is $10 ($5 for spouses and under 16) and every attendee will receive a free IGFA E-Membership, brochures, booklets, catalogs and magazines. Valuable door prizes include rods and reels, lures, charter trips, Guy Harvey limited edition prints and more.
The seminar will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Toms River American Legion Post #129 located at 2025 Church St. off Brick Blvd., which is located only minutes from the Garden State Parkway exits 88 and 83. Come early for a good seat. Refreshments and light dinners will be available from the American Legion. All proceeds benefit IGFA’s Youth Fishing Programs.
