Default finally caught my first one!

:D
i finally caught my first striper! i've been trying for months and wasnt really expecting one. it was about 5:30am and still dark out. high tide was just peaking, if not begining to recede. i was casting out fresh clam and i had just upgraded to braided fishing line about a few days ago. at first, i thought it was a croaker fish(been catching lots of those lately)...but when i saw it was a striper laying on the beach, the biggest smile came across my face. i had finally accomplished my goal... and not without the help of this forum. thank you all for your tips and help. my striper was 24" and was promptly released after thanking him for letting me catch him. a beautiful fish indeed. once again, thank you all. and just like my striper, i am now "hooked"
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Congrats on your first. You must have been thrilled. Seems like the action is definatly picking up. I need to get my butt back to the beach for the surf some time in the next few weeks.

Default Conratulations to AFX Twin

Conratulations to AFX Twin

Hope its the first of many.

This is my stock speech to all new striper addicts.
Hope you join us in promoting catch and release and conservation. Sometimes the best times on earth you can be out there striper fishing. Only keep what you will eat. Encourage others to do the same, obey the law and most importantly we can help this effort buy removing our garbage when we leave an area.

We all take pride in our member accomplishments. And thanks for taking part and making us smile

Once again Tight lines my friend!!!
