Where are the croaker? Saturday, 6/6, my son and I fished Hooper Straits and caught nothing. We moved east of Bishop's Head and caught more of the same. Then moved to lower Hoopers and up into the Honga and still caught nada. What the heck? We were using squid on traditional 2-hook bottom rigs and this always works for croaker. We fished deep and shallow; on the edges and in the channels. We got driven off the water around 4 pm by the storms. The fishing was great but the catching wasn't so good. Maybe the storms scared the fish away?
