Before switching to trouts for the summer I thought I would see if I could find any life in the river, plus run gasoline out of the motor on my Shad boat.
What a difference a few weeks makes. During Shad season this parking lot is full.....humm, not a good sign.

But second or third cast starting catching these. The ole simple Clouser was the ticket.

The east coast striper population is in decline but I was happy to see several year classes in the mix. Mashed down the barbs to make unhooking easier and to protect these great fish.
