First Keeper of April
Got my first keeper of the spring season today (see pic). It came from the Bay where I have had a great couple of days of fishing from shore. Today I landed 14 stripers in multiple spots that I tried. The big one, a skinny fish of 28 inches, nailed an albino Zoom fluke that was mounted on a half oz. round head jighead. In the last couple of days I have landed 36 fish. On average, these fish have been considerably larger than the fish I caught at the oceanfront in the beginning of the week. These Bay fish are also more active and seem to fight harder since the Bay water is about 5 degrees warmer than the ocean water. I even saw quite a few fish breaking water today as they were chasing bait that has also moved into Bay waters.
