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.
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.
