Just a quick word of encouragement. The stripers are on the way!!! Joe C. caught stripers to 21"s off the beach front on May 4th! There are more first hand reports of fish being caught up to and north of Gloucester and in Rhode island stripers are pretty much everywhere! If you have read my earlier reports, I talk about SST Charts. On May 6, 20144 the water out front was 9 degrees Celsius. 10 C is 50 degrees and that is the magic number for happy (less sluggish) feeding schoolies!
