    Default C&R Stripers 4/12/14

    I was on the beach at 5:15 to get a good spot, but I waited until about 6:30 to put my lines in. The point was taken, so I settled just to the right. It was warm and calm, a beautiful morning!



    I got my first fish within 15 minutes or so. It was maybe 23". Soon after I got a little rat, and then not long after that I got the first big fish of the day. The guy fishing next to me measured it at 35". I usually just lip my fish but he clamped some grippers on it, I guess that's the thing to do now.



    Maybe 30 minutes later I got another bite, and it was another good fish. It was bigger than the first, not sure of the length.



    I went an hour or two with no bites, and then finally stuck this big one. This time someone came by with a boga grip.



    I saw 4 or 5 other nice fish landed by other anglers throughout the day, including a mid 30" by a guy using a 6' rod with a wire bottom rig and tiny spot hooks. That was really something!

    After that flurry the bite really dropped off. I only caught one more little striper before heading out at 4. It was a great day

    Sounds like an awesome day. I've never had a day of surf fishing that good.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks guys. Wish I lived a little closer to the bay so I could do it more often.

    It's that bridge over the upper portion of Bay X! Only me and 287,000 other people know about this spot, so try to keep it quiet...
