    The striper fishing is still good as discribed in my post below. but man are they aggresive. I had out a fleet of planers and floats, and i had two downlines off the front of the boat, one on each side. I only use circle hooks for stripers on downlines, 4/0 for alewives, and 6/0 for gizzard shad, this case i had a 6/0 and a 7/0 red b/c i was running low on 6/0's,...anyhow... On these poles i was running gizzard shad roughly both rods had a 7-9inch gizzard shad. Had a striper come straight up on the graph and nail both downlines within a second of each other. My boy Poot, got the striper in at 12lb, with both circle hooks burried in his mouth... Took a pic, just thought i'd share....

    I've had that happen quite a few times. Two customers fighting the same fish is pretty funny. :smile2:

    That can happen pretty often when using down rods in a feeding frenzy. My favorite though is two fish on the same lure(s). Do you umbrella rig at all?

    Thanks for sharing Travis.I saw basically the same thing once while flounder fishing with a couple cousins,Both of them had the same flounder hooked,one thought the other had tangled?let the fish get in his line but the fish actually had both hooks in his mouth,just like your striper.
