Ten years ago on Thanksgiving eve, My friend Paul and I were making our final try of the season on the Freddie C. It was perfect conditions, 20-30 kt winds, Rain and 15 foot sea's. Paul and I are standing shoulder to shoulder with one guy between us and the other 50 guys. All of a sudden the guy inbetween us decides its time to chum. He bends over the rail and lets it go. The wind decided to gust at that point and it did a 180 and covered us. I looked over at Paul and he looked at me and said " yup, it doesn't get any better then this". And since that night, we've both been hooked. Were now learning the surf and the information from here has so far been a great help, But condoms in your tackle bag?
Thanks everyone.

Thank you everyone! It is great to see that I am not alone struggling to get started fishing for stripers. I just moved to Rhode Island from Chicago and have done my fair share of fishing for Sm/Lm bass, northerns and musky. So watching the tides, jumping around on the rocks and fishing the surf is all new to me. This has rekindled my downed spirit...
