    good luck out there Adrian remember i typically use 2 bags of anchoives a night size 1/0 or 2/0 hooks i like to see big stripers in 30+ feet of water and the bite usually picks up really good at 12am till 6 am what ive noticed at least:wink:

    Anchor in 60+ foot of water and fish around the thermocline ( typically 25-35 foot ) and definitely bring a few pounds of anchovies because those small ones are bait thievin' little bastards! Go up in the north end in the river arm and remember to CHUM alot!

    One popular spot is just outside the tires at the marina. Just don't up to them, use your anchor or you will get fined.

    I like both the river and the tires area, opposite ends of the lake though. From December 15 through June 15 the river is closed, so that basically leaves the tires in winter. Also,for bait, try frozen squid from an asian supermarket as well as anchovies.

    adrian you seem to hit the waters at times that most of us are sleeping or already fishing. I read in some of your post your heading to the water as early as 2:00 a.m. With much success of course. It almost seems like you have to get in and out of the lake before the wife wakes Up..lol :smile2:
    or do you just feel those are prime fishing hours?
