|A Cocahoe mounted|
on a 3/4 oz jighead
was hot today.
Today was unusual because there was just about no one fishing and nothing showing. I saw no fish breaking and only saw two small flocks of birds diving where cormorants were driving up bait. It just seemed like there was nothing around. But, when I started casting away in various spots, I began picking up fish. These were hefty schoolies in the 20-24 inch range. The hot lure proved to be a Cocahoe mounted onto a 3/4 oz. jighead. I went with a larger jighead because I was fishing deeper water.
So, the lesson here is that even when nothing is showing, stripers can still be around. You simply have to get out and fish.

showing. There were no diving birds, no bait visible and
no fish breaking, but stripers were around in good numbers.
