The fishin is great up here! We have had some good nights w/ lots of stripers and some blues mixed in! We're catching them mostly on chunk mack right now, we didn't have very good luck using live bait in the spring, I don't know why?
Brandon, for live bait fishin in the Spring, you gotta hit the skinny water At the ends of inlets and rivers, and at dams. The Striper are concentrated in smaller areas. Its like, as we say...."fishing in a tub".
Fishing is good here. The marsh is still kickin', and the full moon flood tide always pulls in some pigs. End of Sept., after the full moon tide, is the end of the marsh fishin though. Off the beaches here in my town is incredible fishing right now. 3 fish between 32 and 38" the other night on chunk mack. Cant wait for some more plug action though.
We have always had good luck in the past using live macks or pollock in the river, just drifting near the bridges or some of the deep channels. This spring it was just not working, I think the 3 lb macks we we're catching aren't good for live bait
