I know...its bird season and bow season and duck season. Its time to watch high school soccer, rake leaves and plant bulbs. The hiking is gorgeous and I suppose that the golfing must be nice, but if you like to catch striped bass you don't want to miss out on the last days of the season. Our waters are still full of bait and the stripers are feeding heavily as they make their way south. There are fish up inside the rivers taking bait on the deep ledges and surface plugs and flies in the current. There are fish prowling the mud flats and sandy bays on the rising and falling tides. There are fish pinning bait against the beaches and driving bait up onto the ledges. If you have the chance to fish from shore or to launch your boat or go out with a friend, do not hesitate.
