We figured out where the wipers push some baitfish against the rocks a few years ago, when I harvested my first world record wiper. They were in the same area on the spearfishing opener (July 1st) this year also. I dove down, there were wipers everywhere, tried to choose the biggest one, and shot it. Then they are gone, they do not stick around. After a few days they move on, and we cannot find them again. Lucky to have figured out a small piece of the puzzle to finding the elusive ghost.
