Fished the beach down to the creek. Lots of bait no fish. At the creek moved out deep and swang(?) a fly for awhile. Nothin happening. As I made my way back birds were giong nuts at waters edge just to the west. I went inside a bit watching the birds and hear a splash behind me in the creek. Sure enough boils and breaks. Damn things must of snuck in behind me while I was out deep. Hooked up with a fiesty 26-28" fish. Not a big deal but I think it's the first striper I've caught since July. I was beginning to think it's time to put the gear away and take care of neglected tasks. Maybe not.
