Fished with my 9 year old for about 2.5 hours last night and three hours this morning. Last night he caught a 4lb channel and a 10lb blue, this morning he caught a 20 lb blue. All fish were in 28-30ft, temp was 65. Seem to be marking alot of suspended fish in the 15-20ft range, I believe they are stripers but don't know since I haven't really fished for them. The last bait he reeled up though, about a 16" striper followed it to the boat. We were using what the bait shop guy called salties, looked like a goldenshiner crossed with a goldfish, very durable baits. I cut their tails off deep enough so they would bleed and I could drift them without them swimming and tangling me up. I fished with several of them for three hours and they were still wiggling all over the place. He's running around the neighborhood now telling everyone about his PB blue. I set a couple of hooks but of course caught none myself, it's all good!
