How do you guys fish the Alewife spawn when the Alewives are spawning but there are no Stripers busting the surface? Are the stripers laying at a drop off just beyond the shallows where the alewives are spawing? Are they just laying under the water and maybe not being aggressive? I can't imagine with such an easy meal that the stripers would be too far away. But, I've seen it happen where there are litererally thousands of alewives spawning and there are no signs of stripers in the area. Any opinions or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
Yeah, I'm sure they're there, but when the alewives get really thick it seems like I only catch smallmouths and walleyes but no stripers. It just seems kind of strange. I'll try some different techniques, because I know they have to be in the area.
