Didn't get to post this earlier, but had a great afternoon on Thursday. It was probably the most injoyable days this season. Cool breeze, and the tide was just right.
Had a perfect drift goin in grassy channel with 3 -10 lb blues on every drift. I couldn't help but to expect a striper or big weakie on every hook up, since I was on the bottom with a pink finesse and shedder procut.
Was able to drift right up between the sand bars which is where the bigger fish were. I was fishing alone but had perfect confidence in the new 4 stroke Suzie to start with no effort, eventhough I had a fish on every time I ran out of water.
They may have only been blues but it sure gets the heart pumping after a long winter.

Sounds like you had a great day. You have to love it when the conditions align perfectly and everything falls into place. Figured I would gamble and forego the flounders for now and ran up river yesterday and had 3 stripers to 32". Not to bad and the weather and wind were right.

Vigilant, I'm new to Chestnut Neck this year and haven't made it into grassy yet, not sure of the water yet, maybe I can follow you through sometime? Caught a 10Lb weakie at the end of it yesterday but didn't want to chance going any further. Xpress, needed a striper yesterday for my grand slam but couldn't find any in the Bay. When you say "up river" I guess you mean the Mullica? Mind telling me how far up? Thanks, Bayrat.

We were in on the Grassy action on Friday... blues on metals while dragging clams for a striper or maybe even one of those lost drum... put a few blues in the box for a friend and turned a bunch back....

Went back Saturday... the fleet was there and the water looked like YooHoo... stayed for a couple fast "blow-thrus" and left for calmer waters...

I think X-press is talking about the mayslanding river lots of reports of bigger stripers caught in the mays landing on live herning. Paper said a guy got a 40 lber that a sweet fish for any river. X-press if u don't mind what were u using for bait i do alot of perch fishing in the mays landing in south creek.

BR, I was just North of GSP bridge in Mullica.
Hooked4, two bigger ones were on live herring and one on a plug. Actually I have to confess and say I did all the netting and dad did the catching :( , but I was navigating. That's worth something, right?.... right? H4, how do you make out in South river? I fish for perch all summer but further down in Tuckahoe/middle area. I am always afraid of getting cut in two by a ski in South but would love to try it early in AM some time.

It's a good fish to chase once the heat comes on... I am over that way almost every weekend in the summer. Maybe we can hook up sometime...
