Look for diving birds or surface feeding fish. Stripers in this area in the Spring when squid are present. Bluefish show up soon after, bonito and false albacore later in the summer. Use soft plastics, surface lures, small jigs, metals, swimming plugs, flies.
Location (1) is locally known as Halfway Shoal, and is a very popular spring time striper spot. Fish this area with 3 or 4oz parachute jigs. Plenty of big stripers but bluefish are mixed in.
Drift on north side of rip in 15 – 30 feet of water, bottom fish for large fluke. Deep jigging with large metal jigs for large bluefish and occasional stripers.
