Default please help

Hey guys I'm new to the sight and need a little help. I've been striper fishing the past four sundays in a row with my cousin in his bass boat. Ive been skunked all four times and dont know why. We fish out in the channel and find the rock fish schooling at about 25 feet but we cant seem to catch any. We use bream for bait and I put a weight with the eye on the to up a good ways from the hook and let the bream swim out. what am I doing wrong?

I'm fishing in Kerr Lake, N.C
I'm on the lake by 9:30am and usually leave around 2:00pm

Well I can't say that I have been totaly skunked, yesterday I was fishing with a good size bream. I reeled him back in I noticed no difference but I had caught a striper smaller than the bait. It was like they traded places or something.

Welcome to the site. Im not familiar with Kerr Buggs only what Ive read.

But You may be getting on the water at the wrong time. Stripers feed at night. Before sun up and twilight is best. Or fish on overcast days, I find they are best. (barometric pressure or something, also low light)
That impoundment is huge, but if your marking fish you can catch em. Even if their not aggressive. Fool em with different presentations.
Try cut baits if live lining aint working. Or dangle an eel or a sluggo near em.

The latest report there is this
Stripers can be found at channel drops near flats between Clarksville and Grassy Creek. They feed on the flats in the morning and evening.

Buggs Island lake stripers hitting around Island Creek and Butchers Creek
But one thing we all know. If you want to catch a big one you have to put your time in.

Good Luck

Default Kerr buggs island

Word has it that a North Carolina man fishing in Kerr Reservoir hooked a 92 1/4-pound blue "cat." If and when it is approved by the state, it will demolish the current mark, a 75-pounder that came out of the James River this spring.

If you see the bass schooling, ever try some topwater plugs (poppers)?
