Do the stripers hate us, or what?

I admit I chicken a little nowadays. I used to jumped on a CC whenever I had a chance for fishing, but one day in early March my buddy and I went out to our fishing spot and suddenly I found my fingers were too frozen to tie a hook and that was the day we got rid of the CC. Yesterday I went to my marina to winterize my boat, as soon as me an my family arrived, we saw a CC going out with four big guys in full winter gears crowded behind that little enclosure..I was like "never again!" but my son disagree with me. He is no stranger to striper, this pic was taken 7 years ago at Brigantine.

Maybe itís me, but freezing my grapes off at 6am for a few shorts itís grinding on me.. almost makes you wonder if itís worth it.
They are here. This weekend busted wide open to the north of you, and they are headed your way.

Been fishing for striped bass off of NJ every fall my entire life. Its my favorite thing to do, but one thing I have learned, you have to commit to get these fish. They are migratory schooling fish, they move and move fast. Catching them regularly often requires long rides up and down the beach - we were prepared to run 30 miles yesterday, we got lucky and found them alot closer but there have been many days we logged 100 miles or more round trip.

Also fished yesterday out of LEI. Letís just say the weather was not the 2í they predicted!! More like stacked 2-4s. Some bait found close to the beach 20-25ft of water but they were found to be small peanuts after tirelessly trying to snag wondering what gives. Then realized the hooks
Weíre bigger then the bunker.

No bites. May try again Thursday am
As there looks to be a short weather window

They are very close. Yes, I feel your pain. I have a charter Thursday. I told my group I am optimistic. Bass were a little ways up the beach on Sunday/Monday but I'm hearing good things. Could be any day now. I'd place a heavy bet that next week it opens wide up for us.

Yikes I guess you were drifting and jigging for em? Around here most guys have just been trolling spoons or them rock candy rigs. For the first hour after the tide swings, doesn't matter either direction. But any more than an hour and half and the dinner bell stops ringing and they'll swim right up to where guys were chunking and hang without even taking a chomp.

It's been great the past few weeks at least between mi and bi. Heard of a few to the south.

Black Friday was a literal parking lot around Chadwick. 5 party boats, many charters and a few hundred boats in a tight area, not counting those on the troll.

Fresh striper cakes the past few nights so were awesome.

Fished on Friday and Saturday this week, nothing off the Red Tower on Friday but there was lots of bait.
Boated a 43" yesterday off of Brigantine Saturday on a white mojo, only bite of the day. Buddy of mine caught one fish in the same area, but slow otherwise.

We still have fish here South Shore of LI. Its mostly smaller fish, but up to 30 lbs I'd say and a lot of rats. Fishing over the past week has been very good, they will come your way. We had a slow start, then a few waves of very large fish, then it slowed, then a lot of bunker and so -so fishing then the jig bite turned on which is what we have now.
