Hello everyone.

I am relatively new to fishing off of my own boat (2 years experience). I fish the waters of the western sound (Fort Totten, Execution Rock, Matine**** Point, etc.)

I hear everyone talking about how easy it is to catch stripers at this time of year, yet we have not had a really great day yet. We did manage a couple of 15-20 pounders

I have been chunking fresh bunker and using chum. I put 2 lines off the bottom on with fishfinders, one floating with no weight, and one high low rig stuck to the bottom. I have a canyon chum bag that I attach to my stern clete and it seems to allow the chum to flow out nicely.

My questions are:

What type of bottom formation should I be looking for? My fishfinder seems to be loaded with fish most of the time, but nothing seems to hit.

I think I have a good grasp on how to catch fish, but my problem is finding them.

I am really hoping to hear from togmaster or Crazy Al as from reading his posts and viewing his website, I feel he really knows his stuff. I would love to have him on my boat for one day. My learning curve would spike

Thanks for any info.

When I was a kid we used to fish off that jetty by Fort Totten. Do they still fish there? Someone told me it's not like it used to be, (what else is new?). Would you get similar results from that jetty that you and Rich get from the boat?
