Default Just give me a hook and an eel..........

I love surf cast fishing with my friends from 24/7. But I am more at home on a boat with a hook and an eel.

The continuing adventures of Captain Dan and Coalman.

I have been looking forward to this trip. It was a year ago Dan put his 2 personal best (PB) 35 pound striped bass in his boat. Our striped bass adventures in August and September saw fish measured in pounds not inches.

We got on the water about 10:30 PM. We were armed with a cooler full of eels. The first couple hours were slow. All we managed to do was drown a few eels. As the incoming tide picked up its pace we put the first fish in the boat.

38" 19 pounds


It took a few more drifts to get "dialed in". I hooked up for fish number two. As Dan was about to net the fish we saw two fish in the headlamps. One fish dwarfed the other. My hook was embedded in a 36". The big one swam away.

The tide turned out just before the sky started to show gray. It was the Captains turn now. This bass had fight.

I bent the net boating this fish. It is Captain Dan's new PB . The measure said 47". Only because that is how high it went. The fish was bigger.

The scale said 41 pounds 7 ounces.


Captain Dan's new PB striped bass.


All the bass were released to fight another day. Stay tuned for more continuing adventures of Captain Dan and Coalman. The summer is young.
