Well it's official! The striper season has officially begun, thanks to Capt.Ray and Art Burton our Rhody Ambassadors. Sounds like a great outing and wish I could have made it.

I broke free from the familiy goings on and got down to the mouth of the Herring River about 4:30pm. I ran into Jeffsod who is a frequent R/T and FFSW guy, top notch guy. I spent about as much time talkin' fishin with him as I did fishin' - the wind was howling out of the south/southwest and although there were both herring and sand eels in the river mouth it was a little too much work casting there in that wind so I got back for dinner by 6pm.

Tomorrow is supposed to be a lot warmer and I'll time it so I have more than 90 minutes to hunt them down. I saw a lot of herring being live-lined but didn't see a single angler hook even a schoolie on small kastmasters. It's gonna be a hunt to get the stripe off *my* back this weekend!
