Stripers on the fly
Hope to be around Three Mile Harbor or Shelter Island this weekend and was curious about fly selection and leaders. The R-T report suggests they're nailing them with poppers--can anyone recommend a particular type? Also, I was lucky enough to be on the water Wednesday (took the day off) and saw lots of blues near or below the surface. Given the presence of blues, what kind of leader would you recommend for the stipers--will they go for a wire leader and, if not, what do you do to save your flies? Finally, the blues seemed to be active on the outgoing tide. What about the stripers? I've heard very early morning--is that regardless of tide?
(Not that I have anything against bluefishing, but I'd love a few stripers.);
Thanks for any advice...
