Talking Birthday Stripers

Slinger, when I saw you post last night I said "Darn it - I knew I shoulda called Slinger"

Anyway, I did have a couple of 'firsts' myself today:

First ever March Stripahs - gotta love that lower CT river

First time I ever fished on my Birthday too - can't imagine why I had to wait 'till 50. I'm thinking this will be an annual event from here on.

Launched the Yak into a pretty stiff NE wind but the fleece and drysuit kept me toasty warm.

Used a drift-sock to locate the schools with a fast sink line on a controled drift and then dropped the hook for a couple of hours of solid hookups.

No keepahs but a couple pushing 20" - holdovers but fit and feisty.

Water temps were 49F in the cove.
