Here is a Month-by-Month recap of 2015:
April: Didn't fish for Stripers beyond 1 trip to the Housatonic river. I believe between Robin and I we caught about a dozen stripers that day, which looking back doesn't seem so bad, but at the time we were pretty disappointed. I flipped my kayak that day and ended up in the freezing cold water. We won't be doing that trip again next year. April was much colder than normal, and our season didn't get going in RI or MA until basically May. I would love to get a shore-caught Striper in April in 2016.
