Just Nothing to Report

We are in a dead time of the year right now.
We are looking at close to a month before we get the springtime migrating stripers.  I'm almost sure this will be a late year due to the cold water and weather.  The wintering over fish seem to be semi dormant with the snow melt and ice melt causing very cold water temperatures.  The few fish being taken in the upper Bay have mostly been snagged.  I have only gotten one small fish in my last four outings and that was snagged.  It has been a poor winter of fishing with numbers way down and sizes very small compared to other years.
So, I'll continue to get out and try for those wintering over fish, but I know it's more or less a waiting game until the springtime action begins.
