After the w*!! backed around to the west a bit yesterday afternoon the ocean was perfect for a couple of hours of trolling. We ran the "Spool's Out" to 30' of water in front of the casinos and trolled shad rigs and Stretch 25's for 2 1/2 hours until sunset and picked up one 23" bass.

We marked bait and bass all over bottom, but the bite never turned on. The water was on the dirty side after the blow and they may just need to settle down for day before they turn on.

We were trolling anywhere from 3.2 to 3.8 MPH. We were getting the shad rigs right down to the bottom with varying amounts of weight.

With the w*#@ still blowing at 20 in the afternoon, it was tough keeping a straight line with one engine out of gear. With the water in their comfort zone, even stripers would have made the effort at 3.2 mph if they were hungry.

With those kind of conditions it is very tough to troll for Stripers. I have found slower the better when trolling. I even bump in and out of gear sometimes to keep the speed nominal.
