Fishermen/Excellant Striper fishing 4/3/12

Amazing what a little change into the NW wind from the North of yesterday will do for the bite!!
Started out clamming, had a slow one, one, pick going, not enough to feed all the hungry customers aboard so we left to find the mother load!

Glad we did as the gannets were hitting the water, the fish finder was alive with life and the bite was on!. Switched up from clamming to jigging. Crocs and Shads were the hot set up as the fish were feeding on Bunker and herring.

We have a new big pool leader with a beautiful 23 pound fish which also took the daily pool today.

Can't wait to get out tomorrow!!!! Video and pics tell the rest of the story... [Smile]

Fishermen/Very nice start to the season!!! 4/1/12
To say I am happy with the start of the season today is an understatement...

Had a very nice morning bite in some hard current up until around 10:30 when we lost the tide. Had shots of 2-3 fish on, then, two, like that.
Bite started to turn back on late with some bigger fish in the mix.

June Benson lead the way with 3 keepers and an 18 pound pool fish, which is the first place fish to start the season on the big pool.

Ralph and Jeff Jr. had 3 keepers with a tag. Couple guys had 2, some had 1 and a couple guys had none unfortunatly. All fish were caught on bait. With the amount of bait and bird life around, wouldn't be surprised to see some fish on jigs real soon.

Sorry guys, but the video is very cloudy..the settings got screwed up when I dropped the camera in all the excitement!!!

Fishing everyday 7:30am till 2:30pm.
