    I have found a neat way to catch Ark. Blues, just go striper fishing. Did not fish much this past week due to the heavy winds that visted LKN, but I went out twice yesterday scouting and fishing for stripers and found them in most every creek from Marker 11 to Marker 20. Eating size blues and a few in the 15 pound range appear to be hanging with the stripers. Just drop a couple of baits a foot or two off the bottom with live bait on it and you will get you a cat or two. A little before dark yesterday, the stripers did their number on bait fish at two points that I could see. They are not in great numbers, but they are there.
