Delaware River Striper Run - Part 2

Delaware River Striper Run - Part 2

Unread postby netmyfish2 » Thu Mar 31, 2016 11:22 am

Have been getting out for striper quite a few days over the last two weeks, conditions have been, for the lack of a better term, shitty.

Real windy, a lot of chop, extremes in high and low tides, just a lot of fun on the water in March. But the one positive is the water temps are staying where they need to be, was at 52 degrees in the main channel and 54 to 55 in the creeks and back bays, to ensure the fish keep moving and the tanks they are catching down in the south part of the river, should be getting up closer to Trenton over the next week....hopefully.

A friend sent some pictures of some 40+ inchers, look like 30 pounders, attached, being caught in a super duper secret spot I pretty much had to bribe him to get some details on. The bribe worked and I got an actual topo of a part of the river known to hold these barbarians.

Will be headed there once the wind dips below a sustained 20+ mph with NetMyFish and Rainman to have an epic day.

So we have been out 4 days, 2 full days and 2 half days all at Linden Avenue. We have 41 striper on, about 4-5 catfish, some crappy and a few perch as well. All have been caught on blood worms, but we have used clam, squid and bunker. We back up the worm with something to keep it on the line as the worms die the second they hit the water and start to fall apart so a small piece of clam or even a rubber blood worm from Gulp, to back it on the hook and keep it on longer, really helped to stop the bleeding, as we were losing a lot of bait.

The biggest was about 23 inches but we did see some keepers being pulled in, 2 in 4 days so south seems to be the way to go for another couple of weeks.

Tight lines fellas and hope to see you guys out there soon enough!

I went on Google Earth and tried to use anything to see how I could get that angle to the bridge but the river bends and it's no beach areas downstream and upstream, I know that area well and there is nothing like this there. I was stumped.

It took a lot of back and forth and a promise of two trips on my boat, one for striper and one to help him get better on senkos, he is just getting into fishing with worms and I've done ok there, especially with the chartreuse tipped ones....

Let me go once and check it out then I will spill the beans.

I actually did see 2 keepers brought in by a boat about 60 yards away but we have had the same, all 12-23 inchers.

I feel it too man, good luck!!!
