The Last Hurrah had another great trip this morning! We had the pleasure of taking a new client from Timonium who could not have been any nicer! He brought 5 teenagers who were more than willing to crank in big fish. We caught our limit of nice stripers by 8:15 and the biggest was 46-inches and 35.5 pounds. Thanks guys! See you next trip.
We finally had some nice weather this morning with light wind and calm seas. I had a good friend of mine who is the owner of Diversified Siteworks today. This guy is always fun and today was no exception. My mate and I had just deployed all 26 lines when a clip popped and we landed a fat, 42 incher. That started off the trip perfectly. We only had three guys and proceeded to catch our limit within a few minutes. We ended up catching another 3 fish while bringing in the rig. 6 nice fish by 7:00 with a great group of guys. The ideal morning!
The fishing has been good overall with some days better than others. Most trips are providing limits and the fish have been averaging 34-40 inches in size. When the bite comes on, the action can be fast and furious, but when it stops you have to wait ’em out patiently.
I had some great groups over the weekend. Despite fatigue and hangovers these guys had a lot of fun and connected with some nice fish! Some came all the way from Switzerland!
Note: some of the gentlemen were wearing very nice, formal coats so not all of the fish were held up for photos….
