Default Cold Shock

Striped bass die-off blamed on the recent low temperature

Sad to hear, especially so for you guys that live nearby and fish for them.

Another crappy occurrence in the on going Striped Bass story! Sad.

I had read about this prior to the post, do you Strip Bass guys buy into the idea that this is what caused it? Since there were no other species cited in significant numbers I guess the weather may be at the root of this but it seems strange. The recent cold snap is not the first time that it's ever been cold up there. have you ever heard of this happening before?

I'm not looking for a bogie man here, just curious.

Oh yeah
Saw the same thing just today in a report from Cape Cod
There's only "pockets" of stripers that overwinter north of the Hudson River. Most naturally migrate south.
Shallow rivers and creeks don't have the depth where the fish can stack-up. They need a deep fiord-like river to survive extreme cold

Some years back the Northport Power Plant decided to shut down operations for a week in January. The waters around the plants warm water discharge hold a! decent holdover population of Stripers every winter! The kill was fast and more massive than any one would have thought and there were hundreds of Bass in all sizes littering the beach! I got to witness it first hand and it was a gut wrenching scene! Even White Perch were killed. !
Funny thing that same year the Mill River in Lynbrook LI which has a small population of holdover schoolies every year had an explosion of fish of all sizes . And for much of the winter much of the river was ice covered! Also caught some of the best White Perch ever fr there.
It's the sudden drop in temperature that must kill them because it seems when temps gradually drop they know to move!
Hardyreels and siege like this.
