Temps are rising people!  With the bottom water temperature at 45.4 degrees we are only a couple weeks away from the stripers making their way past Martha's Vineyard.  Every April vacation I make my first cast off South Beach in the hopes that the stripers have arrived.  Except for last year, I have caught bass every time from 2003 to 2008.  The water temps were a bit cooler last year, and I am hoping that this year puts me back on par with a spring striper for spring vacation. 

Hope you all had a nice winter and to see you on the beach soon.  Look for May's issue of "On the Water" magazine.  I wrote a piece about surfcasting on Martha's Vineyard.  See you on the beach!
