Storminess Turns 'Em On!

Here's a slot coming ashore in the suds.
The shore fishing lit up for me last 
night in some rough water.

I had yesterday circled on my calendar for the last week.  I knew
great conditions were on the way. A big blow from the southwest was predicted with high surf conditions. A full moon high tide would occur just after dark. And, there was a possibility of rain.  It was all the ingredients needed to turn the fish on. This was the exact pattern that produced many, many times in the past for me.

Even though I have not had a big day of fishing in almost a month, I felt this was my best shot in a long time. And, it didn't disappoint.

I found a good number of stripers in some charged up water that resembled a tropical storm. I had them eating a big bucktail jig spiced with a pink Fat Cow jig strip, a real hot combo for me last year. I landed nine good size fish.  Most of them were slots with one over slot fish. I saw no birds, no bait, and no one else fishing.  The fish were just there and you had to try to find them.

The hot lure last night was
a big bucktail jig spiced
with a pink Fat Cow jig
strip.

While the June fishing was a big disappointment overall, last night confirms that there are pockets of good fish around. You just have to be persistent and look.  My guess is that many shore fishermen have thrown in the towel till the fall since I have seen very few fishermen around in the last two weeks.
