I went looking for stripers today but did not find them. I talked to a guy in a boat who said there were none around. It sure seemed like it to me. I took my topwater line just in case and used it on the way back and got a few fish. I had guessed the topwater bite was done until April but it turns out I don't know much about bass fishing. Beautiful day out there.
I sent my regular fish photo camera to new Jersey for repair so I took my DSLR. I figured it would be about impossible to get a fish picture with it in the kayak. It was hard but I got something. It was a nice bass. Really crushed the bug. Sometimes they have been in so many scrapes they look like a tattered old alley cat. Not my best fish pic of the year but that is what I have.
