They’re there, just can’t get them to bite!

Fished in a boat Sunday the 11th mostly off the Red Tower (Beach Haven) from close to the beach to the 3 mile line.   We saw plenty of stripers and bait when we were close to the beach and had one run off around 9:30.  The rest of the day we continued to see plenty of fish and bait but they just wouldn’t bite.
Yesterday I fished on the beach in the same area (saw boats trawling in close so I assume they were marking fish) and never got a bump.
I’ll try again soon.
