45" Striper

Fished with Doug on Saturday out of Sea Isle. We headed out in the ocean looking for stripers. The conditions were a bit tough and there fish are not here en mass as of yet but we did catch one that was 45" and about 38 pounds on the troll. We released the fish. We pulled the hook on two or three others. It's not great, but it's a start. Pro Tip: Constant pressure, instead of pumping and winding, keeps fish on the hook better when using heavy lures like umbrella rigs or mojos. The inherent weight of the lure can and will shake the hook loose if you pump and wind.
