I am by no means a striper expert. Just fool with them when it's too cold or windy to bass fish or I'm hungry for some fish. My experience is that they surface much better on cloudy days and love it if it's raining. If you find the shad, you will find the stripers. My understanding is that at night in the winter they will corner shad in the pockets at Smith. Also know some guys that are catching them under lights now. This past May they were surfacing around the island and Devil's Den early and late. You could catch them on a spook along with some 3-4 lb. spots. When the yellowtails start spawning the stripers will move up really shallow at daylight.They don't like muddy water, but will feed at he edge of stained water like you get around the park and Speegle's.
