Monday Fishing report

We went to Butchers creek and spent a few hours fishing with large bass minows and did not pick up any stipers. We found the birds ,found the bait and marked some fish but never caught any. The water temp was 41 degrees. I am not sure what the deal was, its been along time since we have not picked up at least one. I guess that is what makes this sport fun is you never know what to expect.
beter luck next time

I have found out in past years of winter fishing for stripers that when the Temp. goes below 42 degrees that it turns them off from feeding.
They seem to go into a "light" mode of feeding. Jigging is one way of overcoming some of this.

Hope this helps,

Anybody else noticed this????
