Fished with David and Fred yesterday in the ocean. We trolled one nice striper that was 23 pounds. The fish have been big but the numbers have been down. We hooked and lost another big fish in a micro blitz that was extremely short lived. Pro Tip: Have small jigs on hand. When fish come up to the surface, a small soft plastic may be the only thing they eat.
