    Hello all, Went fishing Friday night hoping to get a big striper on the delaware river, but ended up haulin up 5 channel cats and 1 white cat I was told. I guess I will give the striper another few days to make it up to my spot. In the mean time I guess I should start hunting down some herring.

    I've fished down there plenty of times and have never had a problem. I fish in the middle of the city and I'm still alive. There's only fisherman back there, not crackheads!:cool2::smile2:

    I've caught the biggest stripers of my life on the Delaware River during the spring run on bloodworms.

    If you can get fresh herring, you are pretty much guaranteed a cow!

    I will tell ya Jim and I have seen some messed up stuff fishing down around the city. Tan, you never had a problem down their cause you are the right nationality. I went down their once with one of my buddies for stripers and their were about 10 asian guys down their and it felt like we were getting the evil eye all night. I tried to talk to one of the guys our age and acted like he didn't know any english. But when the cops came down to check the spot out, those guys new alot of english.

    Other than the shore, but in almost a dozen years of fishing in the city limits of Philadelphia, the only place you'll ever see 10 asian guys fishing is UPS behind the airport.

    Dam Tan your good. That is exactly where we were. out on the rocks. It was funny tough cause those guys were out there when the tide came in and got stuck out on the rocks :smile2:. I was watching their shoes and stuff start floating away :smile2:. They were pissed.
