Hi I am back I finially have a pretty good connection. I was in NC for the Holidays and the striper fishing was really good. we had a few warmer days and the rips around Hatteras and Atlantic beach had good numbers of fish all in the 24-32 inch range. I had good luck with bigger baitfish patterns especially RLS patters in blue yellow and white and grey combo's. biggest fish was around 34 inches. The reds were still bitting too. I hooked up with a bunch in Swansborl area. I found a new favorite redfish fly. it is a pulgisi pattern called the everglades special. I bouth two of them and they worked great on a sink tip line.
