05/18/2009 - Striper Fishing on OOAL

Secret Sally, Scrub, Doug, and I headed out with JR aboard Out on a Limb to do a little living lining for stripers.
After my hellacious weekend working nonstop, it was a welcomed change!

We hit the water early and headed off for some bunker...little rough finding them, but we eventually spotted some and JR threw two quick nets, loaded up the livewells with about 150 pieces and we were off to the fishing grounds!

Some bunks!!! I have to admit, O'JRama throws a pretty good net!



We arrived at the fishing spot and were on fish almost right away with me landing a keeper right out of the gate, first (curse) fish on the boat!
Craig followed up shortly afterwards with his first keeper on the day...



We had to fight through some blues, but a short while later Doug hooked up and landed this nice keep



Again some more blues...and Craig landed another keeper



Then as the tide died out, we had a major lull in the striper action...with blues tearing the bunks apart and claiming a ton of hooks.
It wasn't until later, when the tide shifted and Secret Sally Ginsued a livey that the action heated up again.
Here's Secret Sally with a nice keeper



And the little present the fish had jammed in it's throat!



Then Craig hooked up again and landed another nice one...with JR lookin on.



Jesus, they must be thick out there...even I finally got another one!



And a few moments later, Secret Sally was back in the mix with this nice striper



I stopped taking pics after that as the bite was pretty good, Doug landed another keeper and I think we had a few more stripers with a ton of blues.
We ended the day with a nice boat limit of fish up to about 20-25lbs (no scale, just estimating).
Our final catch...



Another shot...




Big thanks to JR for taking us out, another great trip aboard Out on a Limb!
As usual, great fishing with the boys!
Craig was the hot hand, show us how it's done.
Secret Sally can talk the ears off a brass monkey.
Doug got to break in his freshly wrapped rod, but had to battle through blues and triangle offense/nickel defense tangles to keep him out of the game.
I was my standard self, struggling with my nemesis...the striper...but managed to catch my limit...hell if I can do it, anyone can! :D


Until next time! ;)

Are you removing the pictures that give away JR's top secret spots? Perhaps a snap of a spontaneous man-hug? Other manifestations of a Bro-mance? Hmmmmm.....

No, no, no...in the words of JR..."There are no secret spots".

I was creating "Secret Sally" [rofl]

Matt you have to buy his book. All of his secrets are in it. Chapter 3 goes over the facts of obtaining mojo. But you have to dig deep in your pockets and let the moths out.
