I've been fishing the backwaters of Stone Harbor for many years, but just recently purchased a boat that I hope will help me get into better areas. I'm wondering if any veteren SH striper fishermen could e-mail me some good locations I can head to in the backwaters. Most of my experience is with surf fishing and offshore fishing, so I'm a bit lost with the backwaters. I think this can be best proven by my fishing results of two weeks ago. 4 trips in the SH backwater with roughly 50 dogs and 1 13in flounder! I've learned a lot about what lures to use, but I'd like some insight on where to go for my next trip (this Friday) so I can have a real shot at a good fish or two. Thanks in advance to all.

A DEPTH FINDER IS A MUST LEARN THE BACK WHERE YOU CAN RUN AT LOW TIDE,LOOK FOR CREEKS THAT COME TOGETHER OR SODBANKS WHERE THERE IS DEEP WATER NEXT TO THE SOD,WHERE LITTLE CREEKS EMPTY INTO A BIGGER ONE---I THINK FOR A LOT OF TRIPS IT WILLBE MORE IMPORTANT TO LEARN AND WATCH AS IT IS TO FISH.

A great spot to go is patty's thoro also called (patty's hole) It is located near the Great Sound The hole is located between Red channal marker 380 and Red channal marker 382. You can find patty's hole on most intercostal maps. Try to fish there when boat traffic is the least usally at night. If you still think you have a hard time getting around the bay then I would recommend hiring a captain to show you the "good spots"

Personally finding fishing locations by exploring good looking spots is a major part of the experience of fishing in the back. You would gain alot of knowledge of the area by looking at charts, satelite photos etc. And when you find a potential spot that produces it will be much more rewarding.
