: SB report June 11

The word for the day was wire. Blues all over the inside. Along the dropoffs and running over the flats. There are quite a few of them swimming around with their mouths festooned with my flies. Some managed to swallow the fly and 5-6 inches of leader and bite me off. Landed 12 out of 20 that I hooked. Found a spot where they just kept circling around. Fished it for hours.

I hooked a striper the first ten minutes I was there. It managed to make 2 decent runs before I managed to expertly give it a long line release. Only saw 4 other stripers the rest of the day.

Dave from NY thanks for the company.

Oh, a certain captain and I are awating a post from JimS. We want to see if he caught any good bargains at the Christmas Tree Shop :chuckle:

I look forward to fishing with you. I was looking for you Saturday before we went out. Unlike you and Paxton and some of the other "elder statesmen" I can't get down during the week. I'm sure we'll meet up soon.

HEY!!!!!!! Watch that language is not an elder statesman until one cannot walk the flats anymore....thus, Fishhawk and I are still pups! :lildevl:
