The Biggest Fish I've Ever Hooked From Shore!

Its a GIANT! Cast To Catch of a monster Striped Bass that ate the swimbait while we were standing on shore. The situation goes from bad to worse when the big bass decides to head up stream and we can't follow her! 

We get requests for banking fishing videos all the time. We love shore fishing because it offers some distinct advantages. The ability to creep up on wary fish without being detected is key to consistently getting big bites. However, this fish was in a different class and we were very lucky we didn't have to follow her with the boat. 

This fish fell for a glide bait. Below Is a breakdown of the gear Matt and Shawn were using.
