We set out to do an all deadsticking trip. The winds were right. The fish were there. But we just couldn't get them to commit. I used every color under the sun. With the best results coming from solid chartreuse. We boated 8 striper and 2 sand bass. Roughly 15-20 misses. Just very light hearted strikes. The whole time. While looking at a screen full of stripers. I was saying this to myself......"what if I had bait?" The fish were all fat and plump. Biggest was right at 8 pounds.
