    If you still have the passion to go after the striped bass, try going from midday (noon to 5 p.m.) when the fish seem to be most active.

    If you’re able to cast-net live shad, the shad will help cause a bigger bite and more keeper-size fish. Shad can still be found in shallow water near the shores or structure. If you can’t catch shad, use frozen anchovies and don’t forget to chum to attract and hold a school under the boat.

    Continue to cover water when casting and try different speeds when bringing the lure back to the boat. It’s somewhat normal to have a school of fish under the boat with no aggressive bites. The key is to be patient and to drop that bait or artificial lure at different depths to trigger a fish to bite.

    With the water temperature getting to lower 60-degree water, the striper are not as active and will need more enticing to bite.

    This is my recommendation for the “striper Blues!” Go trout fishing, and wait until the new year for more striper action.
