choosing where to fish
Today I went out striper fishing, into the ocean (instead of staying inside like I normally do). On the way out, I passed by some rips with working birds, so i took a few casts and got some time sized blues. Once I got out though, there were no rips or birds. I had no clue where to begin, because there were no clues. I basically just picked a spot and hoped there were fish there. What do you guys do in this situation? THis is the first time I have really been out without a friend that knows the areas pretty well. Unfortunatly, my only friend that likes to fish and knows the water moved to maine, so i'm at a loss. Also, I don't have a fish finder, so that doesn't help.
where would you start?
