It had just started to get properly cold in mid January when Garth and I went looking for our first stripers of the year. It was too cold, as it turned out- the spot was frozen over. That turned out to be frozen too, so much so a lot of it seemed walkable. We only had fly rods but both of us managed to get yellow perch. Two days later, I returned, this time with Noah. We had the right gear and were hopeful that the fish would be on.

The striped bass Morone saxatilis , also called a very big vinget , vonget , linesider , rock or rockfish , is an anadromous perciform fish of the family Moronidae found primarily along the Atlantic coast of North America. It has also been widely introduced into inland recreational fisheries across the United States. Striped bass found in the Gulf of Mexico are a separate strain referred to as Gulf Coast striped bass. The history of the striped bass fishery in North America dates back to the Colonial period. Many written accounts by some of the first European settlers describe the immense abundance of striped bass, along with alewives , traveling and spawning up most rivers in the coastal Northeast.
