I posted this in another forum, but I thought I might try here as it may be a more appropriate forum. I've read these forums for a while but haven't posted until recently.

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.

HEHE!! Rich and I grew up in the same neighborhood. I didn't know he owned R&G. I'll visit him this weekend and see if he'll remember me. THanks for the info.
I tried to call Rich today.

I'd wager that he is out with Crazy Al.

Where did you guys fish today, and how did you do?
My brother went to R&G to get some bait the other day. Rich was there and he had a 37 pound striper with him. He caught it off of Ft. Totten on a bunker head. We went there for the past 2 nights and had a good amount of action on bass and ****tail blues.
