Sometimes you have to break free from convention in order to learn that typical patterns can be a trap. These are pix of three stripers I caught in a back channel that I typically don't fish because it's almost stagnant until the tide pushes in. These stripers created a wake when they were in pursuit of the micro crab pattern I was throwing because the water was that skinny. Oddly, a hooked fish didn't seem to cause the other bruisers to become skittish or disinterested.
