Default warm water...where are the stripers now?

Seems like the stripers are on the run..I was doing pretty well up to last weekend and now the water is getting to be way to warm.

I hear there has been some good fishing for bass down at locus shoal and gayhead. Colder waters are key!!!

Anybody hear different??

I know down here in South County bass are all over the place. From schoolies to cows. I am heading out tommorow morning to see if i can bag a few cows or so with my buddy. But the water temp near Watch Hill is still between 55-60

While water temp is something to take into consideration you shouldn't give up on an area simply because the water has warmed.Proximity to deep water,the presence of a food source and the right timing and bait presentation are keys to success when fishing these areas.The upper reaches of Narragansett Bay are the perfect example.I fish a particular spot all through the dog days of summer,rocky shallows adjacent to an 80' drop off.At this spot leave your plugs at home and rig some small soft plastics or flies.The fish enter the shallows to feed every morning like clockwork and once the sun rises they make the exodus back to the deeper water.Learn your spot and throw the book out,write your own book

Global Warming!!! Thats why the problem on the northwest coast the bait for the seals moved so now their in trouble. The bass are moving NORTH now! Up into Maine waters More larger fish are being caught there then ever before. The news showed people catching some nice ones in Brewer on the penobscot river. Before we know it they'll be passing by the cape and N.H. right to Maine to spawn. Will be a short season in the south east. Catching passers by.
