Way to go! So what did you catch it on? Where were you fishing?

Seems odd to discuss stripers on the freshwater board since I catch most of mine in or near saltwater. Even the fish that go a hundred miles or more up the rivers in the spring are still "saltwater" fish to me. Guess I forget there are plenty of places where stripers spend their entire lives in freshwater.

Imagine casting for largemouths with your 7wt and having a monster like that grab the fly
