Happy Veterans Day to all of the past and present veterans out there. Yesterday we ran a free trip for veterans in honor of Veterans Day. I had the pleasure of having Scott from Philadelphia on board for a striped bass trip. Scott is a career military veteran who just recently retired from the Air Force. I expected a fairly large crowd due to the holiday and weather forecast but when we got out there, we were all alone. After getting the rods in the water we had our first fish on within the first 15 seconds. It ended up being a 26” slot fish but it was also Scott’s first ever striped bass. Since I made the mistake of forgetting our bonus tags at the dock, we released the fish and hoped for good karma. We worked the area looking for bait and fish but there was not much life. After 2 hours of looking around, we hooked up with a nice fish. Shortly after, we boated Scott’s second ever striped bass weighing in at 40lbs and taping out at 47” long. There was not a ton of action today but we were able to get Scott on his very first striped bass and at 40lbs it is a fish he will never forget. Thank you very much for your service Scott, we look forward to having you out with us again and hope you enjoy your fish.
The marine forecast looks beautiful for this upcoming Thursday and Friday. I am available for charter or open boat both days. The weekend forecast is looking less than favorable with strong northeast winds forecasted, so I expect these fish to feed before the blow.
