For anyone who wants to know: I was out for about 4 hours yesterday afternoon. NO SHAD. Tried for a few skipjack, but no bites. Afterwards I put a worm on and tried anything I might be able to use as baite. again, nothing. Finally tied on a 2" chartreuse jig with a 3/4 oz head. I got a couple of light hits, then one solid hit. Realed in a 18" Striper (no guess on weight). Fished for about 30 more minutes and saw 2 more pulled in down the bank. I was fishing up against the dam. the current was a bit strong as they are letting out a little more water than usual. both sidewalks are still under water. Anyway, I just figured someone would like to know what the conditions were.
