Today a 7:00 in front of ocean steel there were fish jumping all over... Some big ones. one looked like a small striper, he cleared the water.... Alot looked like herring or gasperux.. or how ever it is spelled lol...
Might have to take a trip down to give it a try...

a lot of sturgeon are jumping, but it seems like a lot of other fish are too. stripers don't clear the water that often, but it can happen, i saw a salmon do a perfect jump there last week, and i hear the north end was alive with jumping fish saturday night. the main trick with all these fish is to get them to smash our baits instead of the zillion bait fish around.

must have been sturgeon. Muskie will sometimes jump when hooked. 99.9% of the time you see a big fish clear the water on the SJ river it's a sturgeon or sometimes salmon. Stripers do a lot of splashing, but dont usually jump.

Little trick im sure most guys know, if you want your bait to stick out from the real bait fish, find out the color of the bait fish, use a similar color with some red added, jerk then let sink, jerk then let sink, jerk then let sink, reel a bit while jerking and let sink, supposed to imitate a hurt fish and the predators will instinctively go for the easier prey to conserve energy. All fish can instinctively tell the size of food, the ease of catching the food with the energy needed to be spent to catch the food. So bigger and injured will stick out from the swarm.

That's why I tie on a piece of red yarn to my minnow-type flies (i.e.-clouser minnows). Immitates guts hanging out and dragging.

Anything going into the river or out of he river has to go past that spot, so I would think it would just be a matter of timing

i watched birds feeding on flounder in the reversing falls the other day!
