We took a ride out of Avalon on Exile 65 in hopes of stumbling upon some striped bass. They really haven’t made it down this far yet, but are on the move and you can’t catch em between the pilings so we headed out of TI inlet. We had a stiff SW wind and sunny skies. We trolled around a variety of lumps in The somewhat immediate area of TI Inlet with nothing but tons of bait marks but no fish. Water temperature was 58 degrees and clean water, but the bass just weren’t around. We didn’t hear of a fish caught south of AC all day.
