So far this December, in my annual search for the elusive holdover striped bass, my best success has been realized via kayak.
In particular, trolling from the Hobie kayak has been hands down the most effective strategy for locating and catching holdover stripers.
This is the technique I used to locate fish during my successful holdover trip on December 1st. The video below will teach you this simple strategy.

I would like to mention that I am not wearing a lifejacket in this video, only because I had forgotten my lifejacket at home.
Obviously I definitely recommend you always wear a lifejacket in your kayak, especially during the cold weather months.
I’m fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I’ve been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!
