Default 1st surf caught keeper striper

This was my sixth surf trip on the surf this fall and I finally shook off the skunk. My buddy and I fished the surf in three locations from CHSP to DSSP from 7:00 a.m until 4:30 p.m. Skates and doggies were providing all of the action until 2:00 when I saw my big rod twitching. It looked like another doggie the way it hit but I jumped right up anyway and began to reel. I knew real quickly that it was a fish. I suspected a blue at first but it was making a more steady determined run. I caught a glimpse of it passing through a large wave and knew it was a decent striper. I fought the fish for a few minutes then grabbed the shock leader and beached him. My first ever keeper striper from the surf. I was pumped. 32", clean and healthy looking .

My buddy (Mr. "who needs a shock leader") lost two fish in the wash, one about 24" and one that probably went 39". The bigger fish broke his line.

Everything was caught on fresh bunker chunks.
