I hope the stripers will be there on Saturday. We launched the boat early. Air temp at the water’s edge was 55°. We definitely had bundled up. Caught our first 33 1/4″ striper in twenty minutes on a freeline shad 150′ behind the boat.  We only brought 4 gizzies and one salty with us. Should have brought more. 

The second striper 32″ came ten minutes later on a Herring weighted planer. Fish on!

Our 3rd striper was smaller only about 30″ caught on the same gizzie freeline. After that we shed our coats as we warmed up with the catches and a little sun. We saw only 2 boats the whole day and no wind.
