Default Finally I caught my 1st striper!!!!

So I went out at 4 am Wed. morning and man were the birds out and the water looked like it was bubbling!!! Every 10-20 minutes they were hitting the surface. I landed my 1st striper. prob 25-26" practically jumped in the boat as they were busting the surface everywhere. I thank everyone here for their advice as I had to switch to 3 different lures before I matched what they were after!!! Went out yesterday as well at night and landed a 25" striper!!! I am on my way to the 40" mammoth!!!

I've missed 4 to date.

I'm doing great at catching the dogfish on live mackerel.

Congrats, see you out there.

Nice work! Glad all of your hard work paid off!

I was out today. Macs are getting harder to catch but there are still a few out there. Also got some harbor pollack off one of the outer ledges. Bass still around but getting harder and harder (at least for me).
