I have not used boards yet...but I've read a bunch about them and have almost picked a couple up at BPS several times. Have you had good luck with boards?
What are you fishing this time of year mostly; artificials or bait?
Are you chasing bait fish to find the fish? I was out on Centerhill last week (not fishing unfortunately!) and we kept seeing schools of bait fish surfacing all through out the day.
So far I have not had good luck with the boards.
Most times I am fishing below the dam in the boils. With live bait. Its about a fish for every live bait I have. Having to use small bream for bait most days. And let me tell you, The striper's love the bream about 4 to 6" long.
Other days we are fishing the up river end of islands. The fish bust there in the evenings. As the bait fish like it here. And the fish stay there most days.
