I have to admit I have not caught a single striper this year. I don't know what is going on, but could use some tips. I typically fish Hull, the Ditch, or Damon's point and have historically had decent luck 40-50% of the time landing something.
This year - nothing. In fact I have only seen one striper landed in my normal spot and I'm stumped. I feel like I am doing something fundamentally wrong. I typically did well chunking mackerel, clams or thowing poppers or tins. A few questions:
How much does tide matter? Time of day? How to tell what bait/lure to use? What retrieve speed for Stripers/Blues?
I live on the south shore but am up for a drive.
