I started the morning off fishing for stripers, and had a little luck, but nothing worth getting excited about. After a while I switched to my light spinning gear and tried my luck with the sandies. They were thick below the dam. I probably caught 20-25 in about an hour. I was using a Rooster Tail, but you probably could have thrown anything in the water and caught some fish. I did catch a couple more striper with my light gear, and that was a blast! All in all it was a good day on the water, and not too shabby for a noob when it comes to chasing scaly fish.
Also, one of the guys that had gotten there early had a 19 pound striper he caught. That thing was a hoss!
