Today’s trip was all about the girls. It was a tough bite with lots of knockdowns and not being able to come tight and keep all the fish on the hooks. We had to work the bait hard for bites, but Jess and Jaimee also worked hard and managed to boat 3 nice fish up to 34lbs. Great job girls!
With a last minute cancellation we couldn’t pass up the beautiful weather and stay tied to the dock so Jess and Shane hopped on board and we went fishing. The morning started off with a knockdown right away but we never came tight. We spent a good portion of the morning looking around for the right marks but it was very slow. Finally, patience paid off after working an isolated area and we were rewarded with a nice 33lb striped bass. We kept working that same half mile area for a while and were able to pick up and 40lber and then a smaller 15lb striper. Once we had 3 fish in the boat for the table, we looked around in some new areas that we had all to ourselves. We ended up going 3 for 6 on 30lb class fish which were all successfully released. After a slow start this morning it turned out to be a great Veteran’s Day (observed) on the water with beautiful weather. Thank you to everyone who has or is currently serving for our country, especially my cousin who is currently serving overseas in Syria.
The fall striper run is a little later than usual but it’s starting to get into full swing now with lots of bunker and sand eels around. I have a couple dates left in November as well as several dates in December. I plan on targeting striped bass and tautog through Christmas. Lets get out and fish!
