"Get Hooked on New York"

Striped bass Details
Name:Striped bass
Created By:protacanthopterix
Details:After a failed trip in mid-March (skunked!) a buddy and I gave it another shot last night. Norwich harbor is a nice place at night with the snow falling. We began up the Shetucket. High, fast water made it hard to find the bottom with light tackle and soft plastics. No light to see things never helps either. Some bait fishermen were hooking up, but very slow. No fish for us. We moved down to the boat launch to find the same story. A vigil at the gazebo. We next walked up the Yantic jigging super-flukes off the bottom. Around 10:15pm we found the schoolies. Some good action and a few drag-pullers. Unfortunately we had to leave in the middle of it around 11pm. Not a ton of fish, but a good reward after working hard in bad weather. Twice.

Really hit or miss from shore depending on the schools. There is this old dude who is the Yoda or Norwich Harbor. Been out there during the winter when 4-5 of us are getting skunked, and he reels in a fish every so often. I'm watching his bait, presentation, location, everything. The guy is a fish diviner!
