First Stripers of the New Year

One of tonight's stripers is sitting on a sheet of ice.
The new year has been off to a slow and cold
 start but the action was good tonight.
I'm on the board for 2014.  I landed my first stripers of the new year as I had a decent outing tonight in one of my winter fishing spots. Up until tonight it had been a rough start to the new year with last week's snowstorm and then the big freeze putting a chill into the fishing.  Most places were completely iced up, but today the ice departed and I was back in business.  I landed good numbers of schoolies tonight on Super Zoom flukes (albino color) mounted onto 3/8 oz. round head jigheads. It looks like the fishing will be shortlived as another deep freeze is coming tonight and tomorrow.
