They don't really shut down per se. I've caught some nice ones in February at Matapeake years ago. Why not pick up some fresh bunker instead of BW or throw lures?

As close relatives to stripers their preferred temp range is nearly identical--anything over 40 degrees and they'll eat. Nothing you can do but wade through them or switch to cut bait, which works well in the fall.
