Fishing Report: Quantity but not quality…

I will never figure these stripers out as along as I live… Today I had Larry back again, this time with his good friend Nat. We did the same things we had done on Monday and in the same places. The fish were there and we caught well but for some reason, the bigger fish just weren’t hungry.

After 8 or so, the wind really began cranking and it quickly became unfishable. We had in incoming tide and a pretty stiff breeze out of the southwest. I had to use the trolling motor to keep the bow into the wind and slow the drift down. The guys did great in the conditions we had but it was useless and we cut the trip short and headed back to the dock to clean the fish. When I got to CT Outfitters, I checked the on line bouys and found that the winds had been over 30 and were gusting to almost 40!

We ended up with 9 bass in the boat, the biggest was a bit over 40" The rest ranged from 33" to 38"… We’ll do better next time, Larry. I promise!!!!
