Most of my striped fishing happens later in the year. How is the fishing in the sound now?  I have a boat and wanna use it. 
honestly, usually start focusing on trolling for trout this time of year. 
may need to target stripers soon.

This one was last year in mass. She spoiled me and broke off on ledges. Was able to hand line her to the boat. Had to go into ledges to find the line. Alone. No easy feet.

Slowly they are arriving. Ive been catching more schoolies over the past 2 weeks.

 

Still waiting in the bait to thicken up to bring in the bigger stripers

Strippers can usually found well away from the beach.

They’re probably all at home collecting unemployment due to Covid. :laugh:

If using dollar bills as bait do you have to use circle hooks? And how do we deal with crabs? Slot limits? The list is endless!

You have to use 50s to have any hope of getting one. 100s work a lot better!

went out the other day with a buddy to the sound, fished close to shore. 

 

He caught a 44 incher, I got a 33 and 2 at around 29, we both caught ALOT of schoolies between 20 and 30. We were using soft plastics. I did troll a tube and caught a few smaller schoolies, the 44 took less than 5 minutes to revive but we never took it out of the water. All fish were released healthy and kicking!

 

We both marked a big school with alot of marks but we couldnt get any to bite after making a few drifts and casting into them. they were waiting in about 30 FOW right at the end of a drop off

 

It was a great outing and I am waiting for the water to warm up a bit more before targeting my honey hole. It was a touch under 52 degrees last trip.
