Mr. Ed, Sounds like you have hit Jackson pretty hard this season. I went out last year opening weekend and the two boats in our group were the only idiots out there due to the wind and cold. We got skunked and never really got away from the shore to the inlet. Early May we went back and caught wiper in mild weather. Didn't keep any. From what I've read there should be an age class in the 18" catagory this year. Looking forward to a good day up there but you never know. Good luck on your rig and Sterling.
