I have absolutely no news to report. I have tried fishing the upper Bay for wintering over stripers several times in the last week and I have not gotten a hit. I met others who have tried and they report nothing. A few fishermen have been trying along the south shore and it appears to be slim pickings with a small fish here and there, generally what you'd find at this time. Most likely, you will blank.
So, the waiting game for wintering over stripers continues. My theory is that the water is still too warm and the few fish that are around in the Bay are in deeper water.
Meanwhile, my freshwater carp fishing is still going in high gear. I landed 20 fish in the last 4 days with many going in the teens. Check out some of my December catches on http://www.ricarpfishing.blogspot.com/ That is one fishery that is still hot at this time.
