Re: not worth fishing this week
I just got back from a two day bender hitting my old stomping grounds in jersey, in honking winds and fighting Benny's at Roamer's and Flynn's and some other secret locales in which I won't burn. To put it bluntly, Helen Keller could be thumping stripers.
That being said, imho, could it be that the bulk of the stripers are still staging? Just a thought. Also, never pass up an opportunity to fish, even though its a pick, try every possible bait that you know stripers would chew on. I caught two last week on squid appendages (the two extremely long ones) and frozen sardines. Just keep it fresh, they are there you just have to work a bit harder for them.
I am in the Lohud also (Between Bear Mtn. and Nyack beach). Persistence pays off. Tight lines..
