Sunday Stripers

Dusty and I headed out this past Sunday for a quick trip in the ocean. We caught two keeper stripers and headed home early.

Gale Force

Fished today with Nick and crew in the ocean. Despite a lousy forecast, we decided to give it a shot. The winds gusted to 30 knots at times but the fish were still there. We brought two fish to the boat and missed two others. You gotta go to know. Sometimes taking the chance pays off. It wasn't epic, but it was better than sitting at home!

Finally, Good Weather

Fished today with Kevin, Chris, and Zack. We headed out into the ocean and we caught eleven stripers to 15 pounds and one 12 pound bluefish. Most of the stripers were caught on the troll and we did jig up one at the end of the day. The fish are here, we just need the weather to get out there and catch them.

Wind Blows

Patty and I snuck out for a quick trip last Monday and we caught this striper on the troll. Since then the weather has been awful. Hopefully this weekend the wind eases up for us. This has certainly been a November to forget when it comes to the weather!

Finally Good Weather!

Fished today with Mike, Mike and Ken. We headed out in the ocean looking for stripers. We tried jigging early but that was not fruitful. We switched over to trolling and settled in to grind it out. We ended up with five nice stripers from 34-38 inches. We also missed a couple that came unbuttoned. It was a beautiful day on the water.

Returning to Normal???

Well, it is a mess down here, but we made a bunch of progress cleaning up today. Believe it or not, I put my boat back in the water today. The regulator goes in tomorrow. It will be interesting to see the impact on fishing as we move forward. My thoughts and prayers are with those that are still coping with the aftermath of the storm.
