The early bird gets the...

Striper!!

Met JimW at a Chatham beach this AM.

Short version: I landed a FAT fish, length unknown, over 30Ē, it stretched open the gap in my hook, had to leave at sunrise, Jimís still out there somewhere.

I wish I could start every day like this.

Great fishing with you Roop. That fish was such a porker it was running out of skin. I hit the light from 8:00-9:30. There were some birds grabbing sand eels out in the middle of the bowl and small sand eels in the current close to shore, but I couldn't seem to find the fish. While I was at the light there was a major blitz on the backside of Nausset point that lasted about 45 minutes. I tried another spot after that but it just wasn't in the cards today. Nice day to be out there though.

Next time you guys are going to play hooky - let me know. The excuse is already written - just need to insert the proper date.

Allright Roop!

Great way to start the day, those really FAT stripers are amazing. Sounds like a great morning out.

Greg.

Well Roop I guess you didn't get to put your saltwater gear away for the season. Just one more cast. Great report. FishHawk
