Default Need 50 degrees

Normally I wont go out until it hits 50. But if I get 47 and sunny on Saturday I will fish the bay the first two hours of outgoing tide. Why not, give it a shot.

Default South side of the Raritan Bay

I fish from Morgan Creek to Cliffwood beaches this time of year. I have caught keepers from March 6th on. I use clams primarily but will use worm on flounder rigs. More times than not I catch stripers on the worms.

Any time I use worms I hold the pole. Dead sticken I lose. I like those offset fluke hooks myself.

Default flounder rigs do the job?

you are saying flounder rigs are big enough to catch striper? flounder rigs are size 4/0 arent they. i thought they would be too small and stripers would spit the hook too easy. i am new to the game and am curious on the vatiety of hook sizes you are able to use for stripers. any andd all advice is welcomed. man this is a great sport!!!!

You dont need really a great big hook to catch em with. I usually go to the bigger baitholder hooks to hold the chunks. I've caught them with black fish hooks. Sometimes I'll use them if Im if there is too many schoolies around. and or throw plugs. My ideal go to hook for chunkin bait is a 7/0.

Default Good Point

Hi Jim,

Thanks for that, good point. I should be doing more holding. Rodney the rod holder has caught a good number of fish but not too many winter flounder. Have you ever used the terminal stainless chum pots. I am not a big fan of casting heavy stuff out there, but I if I hear it works I may give it a shot. I am generally fishing with Bairunner 4500s and 3500s with fish finders, so I need to break the dead stick bad habits. :)

Good site, I am enjoying it. I have gone to other fishing sites but this is the first one I have posted to.
