Beautiful sunny day with no wind so I had to get out and fish. Paul and I left the dock at 11:45 and figure we would fish the warmest part of the day. Fishing conditions were perfect except for the lack of fish. We headed out to the ocean to work the incoming tide. Paul had two hits and landed both fish with the biggest around 20 inches. Both fish were caught within 5 minutes between each.
I never got a single hit the whole trip. Water was from 49 to 52 degrees and both fish were caught in along the surf in 5 to 6 feet of water and we fished till 3:00 pm when it clouded up a bit and got a little cooler. We tried 4 other spots but they were dead. All the other boats we saw striper fishing were all coming from areas well north of the inlet with many running up to Sea Isle and Ocean City. Didn't see anyone cleaning fish back at the dock. Sure was beautiful day for this time of the year and felt good to be back out on the water
