First time out at night!
Hey guys, ever since I caught my first few schoolies last year i have been hooked on striper fishing. But being 15 years old, its a pain because me and my friend (lxpaul6) only get to fish during the day and sometimes into the evening, seeing as our parents just go to the beach during the day. We have made multiple day trips this year, resulting in only a few schoolies so far. BUT last night we finally talked his parents into taking us to the beach at night! I hooked into my first legitimate striper at sunset on clams, after a he sprinted with the clam i set the hook (probably too soon due to my nerves...) As i began to bring him in he jumped out of the water giving me a nice look at him, and boom he spit up the clam! After the sun went down we broke out the eels. Paul and I both nearly missed stripers on eels, but it was our first time using them, so we just need to get the hang of it. We had to leave around 11, although i could have stayed there all night. But none the less we got a feel for night fishing, and look forward to bringing in our first keeper soon!
