This mornings striper fishing trip was a success in terms of the number of fish to the boat and the cool air present well down the river. The icing on the cake cam in the last few minutes. As I was pulling away from one of the last fishing spots I noticed an eagle land on one of the nearby ledges. Always interesting to see one standing and not perched in a tree.
First a fishing report. On the saltwater the striper fishing has been noting short of amazing. Good numbers of fish from 16 to 24 inches most days and tides. I have seen a few big fish go by but nothing on the end of a line yet. As always I prefer the last couple of hours of the outgoing tide but most days it does not seem to matter and the flats at high tide have been dependable.
On a recent family fishing trip the catching was pretty slow. They enjoyed a trip last summer where it seemed like every fish in the pond was eager to get on the end of one their lines. Not so this day. Yes they caught more than a few fish but they came slowly.
