Out with 'hardcore' (striper)

Had a FANTASTIC morning out on Mike Mayo's Triton before the two-handed clinic! Left the house at o'dark thirty and met Mike near Barn Island ramp. It was so cold my boots were frozen to the stripping basket and a fly was embedded in the ice like an ant in amber. I doubled up on the fleece as Mike got the magic carpet ride started, boy those big four strokes are quiet and sweet ride on that big beamy hull.

Those of you who know Mike know he's hardcore (as Capt.Ray puts it) and a heck of an angler. His recent 54 pounder was testament to the hours he's put into his sport. It was great to get out there on a day when the birds were all over the place and fish were busting for acres.

Even though he's landed whale-sized bass, he still enjoyed every fish and noted how fat and healthy the sub-legal bass were that we found on top eating pea bunker. After some bluefish bite-offs, we got smart and put on the wire. Just in time as the surface action got pretty crazy from there!

Thanks to Mike's ability to sniff out where the fish are going to pop up next, we pretty much were in the right place at the right time all morning. I wanted to test the boat abilities of the Atlantis rods and got my chance for sure.

We had a little fun out there too - Mike put a teaser lure on with no hook and we grabbed the movie op... (warning large download)

Having fun with blues

Thanks striper - I had an awesome morning out there!
