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.

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.

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.
