I've been Waiting paitiently all year for stripers so it would be fitting that after busting my hump to get the boat ready, and setting up to go out today with the early reports of fish, mother nature has to throw a curve ball in my plans and blow in a cold front. Why couldnt it just rain . I went as far as getting lunch hooking the boat up on the truck and all the other fun stuff you have to do the night before a trip. Then i decide to check the barn for an up to date report. I am really glad i did because i then saw a post about thursday being windy. i went and checked the weather report and sure enough it was gonna blow. decided i would see what it was like when i woke up. Woke up my normal time for fishing and walked outside on my deck in wenonah. Winds were sustained at about 12mph. so i know it is blowing in the bay. Oh well thats just another sign that it is time to catch stripers. Thanx to the barn i was not dissapointed when i got up to go this morning being that i had a heads up. looks like sat. is gonna be nice. so changed my bait order to then. Good luck to everyone this season. be safe .
