Bait, bait everywhere, and nary a striper to see. (5/19/13 on the Lower Conn - 05/19/2013

Bait, bait everywhere, and nary a striper to see.   I decided to move down river this weekend, despite the stripers still hanging north of Middletown.  This was my first trip to the mouth of the CT River, as I had heard that action was pretty decent around Great Island the last week or so.   After yesterday afternoon's trip cut short (20 min. total) by a problem with the Lowrance, I was back on the water at 5am this morning.   The tide was coming in until about 7:30 , and it was dead calm.   I'll never get tired of a sunrise over the water.     I started throwing pearl Sluggos and some swim baits, and had a few swirls and swipes, but no hooksets.   Close to and hour and a half of work did not produce a fish, nor did I see any pulled in by anyone else in the area. I decided to motor north and see what I could find.   A few swirls above the 95 bridge, but I just couldn't get a fish to bite.     Just below Hamburg Cove, the water exploded with herring.   I was marking a school so thick It looked like the bottom was at 10 feet in 30+ feet of water.   Surely, bass had to be beneath.   I dropped   soft plastics through the school, bouncing them of fish as they descended.   I fished swimbaits at every level and sluggos on top.   Nada.   Nothing.   I wasn't marking any big fish either.   Same story with two or three other boats that had been working the school for a while.   Live...
