Thames stripers
« on: January 07, 2006, 10:49:20 PM »
I've been spending alot of time down the harbor area at night as to avoid the daytime madness. The bite has been good and it provides somewhat of a challenge as the geography is pretty hairy.  The ongoing joke prior to starting is " swim w/ the current".

I've been staying off of the main pods of fish and have gotten fish up to 37".  There still is alot of small fish in the mix. I know there are some cows in there. My buddy was spooled last week and it wasn't a seal as evidenced by the classic head shake.

As long as there is no wind it is great down there at night.

Its actually pretty nice Curt, sometimes even better than during the day. If there is no wind and above 32
AND you dress for it, it is pretty nice.
