Doug, Ryan, and I fished behind Sea Isle today. It was my first trip here this spring. We were rewarded with the first three stripers of the year with the biggest almost 28". All three fish ate jigs. Also, Patty, the boys, and I went back out for a bit and Patty caught the first fluke of the year. It's on. Pro Tip: Look for small variations in water temperatures in the spring. A few degrees warmer makes a huge difference if you can find it!
