Dont be discouraged. Stripers are not the big dumb fish stock devouring hogs that some folks believe them to be. They tend to be on the move alot. Right now they are scatered and suspended in deeper water. This time of the year night time (under dock lights)is the best time next best is early and late. Middle of the day is a waste. We caught a few 3 weeks ago trolling at 20-25 ft deep. covered tons of water between strikes.
If you are discouraged then take a break until winter/spring when they are crashing topwaters. It is more addictive than drugs and women.
