Fall striper fishing is certainly upon us. The water temps are now perfect, and last week's blow turned the fish on big time as we expected. We've been getting fish whenever the weather allows us to get out. I've been drifting live spot around the inlet and in some of the back areas with pretty good results... fish into the high teens and plenty of action. Just before this weekends wind kicked in there was a pretty good flurry of activity on really big fish - bass into the upper 40's and blues close to 20 pounds - pounding Maja spoons along the beachfront. With the thought of 40's out there, you can bet I'll be mixing in a bit of trolling this week in addition to live baiting in the bay.

Now all we need is for the weather to cooperate. The table seems to be set for a spectacular fall bass fishery so let's go fishing. It's time!
