|This 30 inch keeper was landed|
today along with 4 other schoolies.
There are fish around, but you have
to work for them.
However, I don't want to sound like I am complaining because I am consistently catching fish, though not as many as I would like to be catching. In the last two weeks I have fished just about every day and have not blanked at all. I have caught two stripers or more on every outing. Take today for instance. I headed down in the afternoon and really worked one particular area along the oceanfront with swimmers (Daiwa SP Minnow). I landed 4 stripers and had a few more hits. One of those fish was a keeper. Later, I worked another spot after dark and landed one more fish. So, not too bad on a day in which I saw no bait, no birds and no fish breaking.
So, there are fish around. Yes, some here, some there. A lot of fishermen are complaining that they are not seeing many fish, but I suspect those same guys are not doing much casting. It is a matter of getting the plug in the water and working the spots to come up with a fish or two. They are around.
