Big Stripers on Live Bunker

LI Fishing Charters - 05/27/2011

Yesterday was a very tough day for everyone.  The east wind shut down the bite but fortunately blew itself out overnight.  The bite today was much better, though it still required a lot of effort.  The best action was in 55-60ft of water on live bunker and chunks beneath the bunker schools.  Unfortunately, not all of the bunker schools are holding striped bass.

Steve, Nick, and George had eight keeper stripers (21-26lbs) in the first 3 hours of fishing (and missed several others).  The bite slowed a bit in the late morning and the guys were back at the dock by noon (5:30am start).  This weekend is completely booked and the next opening is Tuesday (morning & evening), Wednesday evening and Thursday are also open.  Please call Capt Mike (401-573-3474) or Capt Andy (516-978-1634) if you are interested.
