: First Striper on the Fly

Last week on the Chesapeake Bay> My first Stripers on the fly. 15.7 pounds and 10.4 pounds.

All caught on a half and half clauser.

New 10 weight did the trick.

Cool - btw do you get stripers in Chesapeake Bay all summer?

I am from Ohio and was fishing with a friend who lives on the bay. I think he does well until late June.

I think the fish head out of the bay or just outside the bay. They come back in the bay in the fall. Last year I caught several off Long Island in Late June and July.
