Wish I had Something to Report

I wish I had some good news to report regarding winter striper fishing, but I have nothing.  I have blanked 5 times in a row and know of other fishermen who have not seen a thing in over two weeks.  Not good. I'm actually giving up on fishing the Providence River on a regular basis, and  I am now freshwater carp fishing at night and in the evening and catching a good sized one here and there. At least I am catching.  My gut feeling is that the upper Bay fishing for schoolies will pick up dramatically around the first week of April as new fish arrive earlier than in other years due to the mild weather.  Until then,  it will be little or nothing.  The fish are gone.
