    "We are still hammering stripers," said Capt. Frank Wagenhoffer of Fin Chaser Charters. Frank told me this time of the year he is usually fishing blackfish, however, this year the fishing has been hit or miss. One day you fish a spot and beat up on the whitechins, then you go back to the same spot a few days later and the fish have lockjaw. "The nice thing has been when we can't find some tog on the chew; we have been able to find cooperative stripers," Frank said. This was the case with the Dave Moore charter the Friday before Christmas. Frank said he intends to fish the boat in January as long as the fishing and weather is cooperative.
