Maureen and I went out for a quick morning trip on her Contender Trade In looking to catch a few striped bass on the troll. We had a beautiful morning and ran out during the sunrise. We started off with lines in close to the 3 mile line off of the OC Ferris wheel in 51.5 degree clean water. Not much action. We mosied south across a few typical lumps and areas that hold stripers but no marks. We gave it a shot in the same general area that we fished on Monday but overall lifeless. We moved back up and worked over some bait we marked but no bites so we made our way back home. Unfortunately we hit a stroke of bad luck and had the PowerHead go on the port engine. Game Over. Major bummer. Looks like that will be the season on the Trade In.
