So the striper season is officially open and I got the bug bad guys! I got next weekend off and wondering if it would be worth the drive out to Assateague island for some camping and fishing? Is anything going on in the surf this early in the season? I have trips planned in April/may. Should I just wait till then or give it a shot? Keep in mind this is if the weather is half decent.

Yeah I plan on doing this later in the week. But, I have been taught not to always trust what they say. Wanted to get others opinions.

you might be able to catch schoolies in the surf. IMO i think its a little too early for the surf. Most of the bass are just starting to hit the spawning areas. But it will be a huge bonus if you land a fish, camping and spending time at assateague during the off season is a huge reward in it self. Good luck let us know how you make out

Fished AI the 9-10th and caught one skate. I tried a bucktail teaser fly combo most of the time and fished bunker for the pm high tide on the 10th. The couple guys out fishing AI had a similar report. The weather was great so the bite should be on soon. The water temp. Was 47 i think.

The weather is cold and rough in cape may and from what i hear the fishing isnt good. Fished a bucktail for the pm hightide with no luck. Its crazy the difference from AI/OC. Seems like the bait of choice if clam. Gonna try frozen bunker tomorrow.
