We brought in the New Year with a serious Cold Snap. Tough North Blow Too Rough. Wind Slowed Water Too Cold. The Lower Bay and Coastal Water Temps dropped 11 degrees during this blow. The Striper we were hoping would give us a Coastal Season Bite swam rite by us and ran offshore. Reports of huge schools of Striper have been seen and harassing the Bluefin Tuna Fishing Boats offshore. ( note- it is illegal to target Striper in Federal Waters.) We didn’t execute any Striper trips this Coastal Season due to the lack of Striper in Legal Striper Fishing waters. It’s still nice to hear they are out there, even if they are not where we want them to be. Maybe next year we will get a whack at them.
