    Default Midnight Stripers on the Fly

    Got to hand it to the guys poking around in the dark with fly rods. This 8-weight has about 1,000 times more night time fishing than day time, and that’s probably for a reason. Good to see fish moving in for the season routine. Nice catch!

    Nice catch. Normally once the water warms up and the sun gets intense, low light or night time is always the best. Right now If you fish structure, jetties, points, rip lines or certain back bay areas you will find fish until the water gets warmer. With temps in the 50's to mid 60's the fish seem to be more interested in finding food than worried about being picked off by a preditor.

    Seeing some cinder worm hatches up until this rain. We’ll see what things are like when this clears up.

    You are lucky to see the cinder worms. I can't remember the last time that I saw a good hatch down here in the Cape May Harbor area. Only bad thing about cinder worms is that sometimes there are so many of them that the fish put the blinders on to anything but the worms and they can be more difficult to catch. I remember making up some flies to look like cinder worms for the next time that I saw a hatch. Don't remember ever having an opportunity to use them.

    Boo Worms! It’s the same up here. Gotta be ready but you can’t count on it. They get on the worms and they won’t touch anything else.

    Around here, the night guys have outfished the day guys 10-1 this year for stripers, especially the big ones. This is on foot. Boat, yes, you can find plenty during the day, but in the shallows it's almost always a better opportunity at night, any time of year except possibly when the river herring first run up.
