Casino Cows - Stripers on the Thames River

Here's a look at some spring live line CT striper fishing. The truth is, most all of the main rivers hold over fish, and as soon as the herring, shad and bunker return, these fish put on the feed bag, providing excellent early season action. There is no mystery to the method. I was simply bump trolling live bunker on 8/0 circle hooks past structure, points, and the edge of flats. As the waters warm, these fish will drop down into the Long Island Sound to join the migratory fish moving in from the Hudson or Chesapeake Bay.
