Default Striper fishing at Branford Reef & Townsend Ledge

I'm new to this site and actually somewhat new to striper fishing. I have been on numerous striped bass charters but have never fished in the Branford area for stripers. Lately I have been fishing the area at night. I am trolling wire all around the Beacon area and Townsend's Ledge on the incoming tide using parachutes, 18" tubes and 6" shads. I concentrate on the top edges of the bumps where there are significant changes in the bottom structure as well as the wrecks and rocky areas. I troll at 3.4 knots by the GPS.
I haven't caught a striped bass in weeks! Even the bluefish aren't hitting my lures. Is my strategy wrong? Should I just concentrate on fishing chunks? I talk to other guys at the marina who say they have been catching fish in these same areas but I haven't actually seen any of these fish. Any help will be appreciated.
