|Cocahoes on a small jighead|
were hot producers today.
|My shrimp fly teaser was|
also a hot number and led to
numerous double headers.
Credit those recent warm days and a southwest wind for blowing the main migration of stripers our way. And, yes these were migrating stripers. Nearly all the fish I landed were bright colored and loaded with sea lice. These fish were all on the small side, running as small as 7 inches and as large as 20 inches. The average fish seemed to be about a foot long. There are rumors swirling that some small keepers have been taken in the last couple of days, but I saw nothing that came close today.
I landed all my fish on either three inch Cocahoes on a half ounce jighead or the shrimp fly teaser rigged ahead of my jig. I probably had at least 25 double headers with that rig.
The good times have arrived in a BIG way.
|Check out the sea lice on the tail and lower body of this fish. Nearly|
all the fish I landed today had sea lice, a sure sign of a migrating striper.
