Stripers and Hybrid Moved to 50-60 Feet of Water

The fish that we are catching are coming from 50-60 feet of water off the channels. We are dropping bait to the bottom and cranking up 4-5 times. Most of the fish are weighing 2-4 pounds, but we are catching some 5 and 7 pound fish. It not a quick bite. We have to wait for the fish. The fish will come under the boat and we catch a few then they leave. We wait and then they come back. Some time it’s a big hit and other time they just wiggle the rod. Last Saturday we caught an 8 pound catfish. The water is 10 feet below pool, 53 degree and clear.
