I've been skunked for over a month...Any Suggestions?

actually, maybe you should stop plugging away.  I'm a heretic for suggesting this, but leave those plugs at home and fish some striper sized plastics.  For a bass fisherman, it's a pretty short jump fishing plastics for largies and plastics for stripers.

 

Some might even argue that plastics are the best way to catch stripers...

All recommendations noted. I have not been using a leader- Just picked up some clear fluro and will try, try again ha! 

I rarely use fluoro for stripers.  Mono or mono leader material are both much cheaper.

I got a fairly good deal on some berkley fluoro - it did not help tonight however. Had fresh herring and all- once again #fail. (Fished boston harbor, by charlestown)

go for a walk after dark and fish under the lights with a 6" Hogy on a half ounce jig head.  Don't fish any spot for more than 10 minutes without catching a fish.  cover ground, plenty of fish in Boston, especially the areas you're fishing.  Don't wait for them to find you.
