Striped bass play on the flats

Nothing frustrates a fisherman more than sighting a beautiful striped bass , only to find the striper is not interested in his offerings.  Crystal clear water and a sunny sky made it very easy to spot the fish on the open water  flats, but they would not hit any of our arsenal. We watched in awe as they terrorized the baitfish. We were  enjoying the striper show, but catching stripers was the order of the day.

We moved off to a new locating, we found the tide running a little harder coupled with a freshly clouded sky . On the first cast a 24″ striper put Wayne’s drag in motion, more action followed.  Hopefully we will get some NW wind in the near future. A south wind this time of the year really slows the bite. The water temperature is back up to 64 degrees.
