Welcome to the forum! Keep an eye on the water temps. Once they get into the upper 40's/lower 50's it's game time. Check out some the Stripers 101 Sticky Threads for tons of info on the basics!

Clams in the spring- Bunker in the fall. I always do better in the fall but many do better in the spring. Anchor up, drop your lines and wait. Chum and they will come. I try to fish away from the fleet. Del Bay has been very good. Be patient and you will get more than one!

You usually do much better for stripers while anchored. We chunk up bunker or clam and throw a piece or two out every few minutes. I have actually filleted stripers that had 5 or 6 pieces of my chunks in its belly. As far as location- I usually look for a drop off but I have a few spots that produce that are flat as a pancake. Click on my youtube link and watch the video that comes up. You will see the size of chunks we use for bait and chum. We also rig one line with a whole bunker.

Catchem up!
