Birds working all the way from the mouth of the Housatonic to Charles Island.
The Garmin showed what was going on below the birds.
Got this photo by setting the Canon for a delayed exposure and then putting it on the top of the console...explains the tilt.
The traditional chartreuse/white Clouser minnow did the trick. This one's looking a bit bedraggled after being worked over by a half-dozen stripers.
Did have to keep moving Shoo-Fly to follow the action which slowly dissipated as the afternoon went on.
It would appear that this is part of the annual fall pattern as the stripers return to the Hudson River, Chesapeake Bay, and to a lesser extent the Housatonic River for the winter. Hopefully, it's just the start of a long migratory season.
