Default Mass stripper fishing

Hey guys, im new to the striper and boating world. Im 25 live in Ma about an hour from the coast. Ive always fresh water fished but never fished saltwater til my friends father took me out striper fishing last spring. Had the best time. First we jigged for mackeral and caught about 3 dozen. Than we went trolling and caught 17 in about 2 hours. Ranging from 15-25lbs. I had the best time. Than last fall i was lucky enough to have the very same boat i went fishing in given to me by my freinds father. Its a 19 foot bowrider 140hp 4cylinder. Its an 84, needed a little TLC but i got her back to her old self with a little wrenching. Upgraded to an electronic ignition and woke it right up. Anyway , now that i introduced my self. Just for the hell of it i took it out last Friday on that beautiful day out of Salisbury (thats where we hammered them the year before and the only place i know) I just wanted to get out so i put 3 dif baits on 3 dif rods and just trolled around to try to get something. Is there anything out there this early?? I honestly didnt expect to get anything i know they arent running yet, but is there anything out there to catch, and what should i use? Thanks....Jay

Welcome to the sight, your a tad early, the only thing around in our area (Salisbury/Plum Island) other than the odd holdover striper is seals... lots of 'em... that will all change in the next few weeks, shad will begin to show in about two weeks and small bass may be here by the first week of May, second week at the lattest...

Usually single dollar bills will work when trying to attract a nice stripper, although if you want to get a really nice one, flash a couple of tens or 20s her way.

Ooops...wait a meant stripers. I'm sorry...continue on.

Girlfriends definitely taste better than strippers (unless you like the taste of perfume). They tend to have less sea lice too. Just kidding, What Roccus said seems right. I hear that salsbury/plum island are is excellent striper territory. Congrats on your boat.
