Today I was able to hit the SE gusts alone on my skiff. The tides were right.
I had an amazing time with the fish. Unfortunately they were all this fall's keeper class (26/27), but then again, shouldn't eat striper every day. The great thing was that they were ballistic bass and actually challenging to hook. Many strikes, but the wind and waves made it more difficult for them to grab the hook. This was fine because I enjoy seeing them getting charged up and striking, perhaps even more than landing them.
Again, an amazing afternoon out there along the rips. Enjoyed seeing Papa Neal and his crew doing well too.
No pics -- time to replace my camera or kidnap Dave Grossman every time I leave the harbor.
