Went late Thursday pm and caught some dinks and a small striper. I felt that if they didn't bite Thursday in the wind, maybe Friday would be better. Launched at Deep Bottom at dawn and away we went. Caught some more dinks and hooked three brutes. One broke off, one pulled the hook, and one 70 pounder landed, photographed, and released. Its only going to get better when the stripers and shad arrive. Going again in the morning and probably this afternoon.
