Slapping your bait

Striped bass will "slap " at a bait or plug - before they actually take it? What are they doing?..Stunning the bait so the take will be easier. But did you also know that there may be a "numbing agent" in their dorsal fin that, if made contact with, can anestisize a bait for an easy dinner! If you don't believe Striper Mike, remember what I said when YOU get stuck by a dorsal from a Striper......when your hand is Numb, I hope your memory is not, and you will recall this segment.
