Pat and I are gonna get this right one day. We've caught stripers in December, but still can't seem to get one in March.

I think it has more to do with the fish than us.

Or rather this year, more than the weather than the fish.

There are definitely better months to catch stripers, but like a lot of other anglers, Pat and I were tired of staring at frozen lakes and it had been awhile since we hung out on the beach.

Too long.

So we planned a day, got up early, stopped at Fred's for some clams and bloodworms and headed to the Raritan Bay via South Amboy.

Everything was right.

Except for the fish.

That being said, it was great to catch-up with Pat. Sometimes fishing is more about the company than the fish. I've had a good run lately, and you certainly can't win them all.

Especially in March.

There won't a blog next week, but stay tuned. Hopefully I'll have some better pictures up here shortly! The Pequest Hatchery is having it's Open House this weekend, the 29th and 30th. I won't make it, but stop by and see my friends at the booth for Chapter 22 of Muskies Inc. Remember that Opening Day for trout in NJ is 8am on Saturday April 5th. Please check the state website for information and changes to the spring stocking program due to an outbreak of furunculosis at the Pequest Hatchery. 

Stay safe, stay warm and tight lines!!
