I went striper fishing with some friends today on my boat. We caught 42 B [no swearing please] this afternoon, all on clams.[up] Most were slot fish around 26 inches. The biggest was around 33 inches. Going back out in the morning with my brother. This sundays striper trip should be a blast, if the weather holds up!!!

The clams were all alive. I shuck them as I need them. The fresher the clams the harder they are. I start by opening the clam, then I scrap all of the insides out. I then cut the clams tounge inhalf along with the gut. I always have some gut on my hook for scent. If you hook the tounge 3 or 4 times then hook some of the gut once, it shouldn't fall off as easy.

I have also seen some surf casters tie a whole clam on thier hook with dental floss. that works good when you have to whip your bait out away from the beach If your on a boat the way I mentioned before works great. Make sure you have enough bait, I always buy a bushel or sack from the bait store.;)

See now I'm really pissed, I was supposed to be on his boat today[mad] But not me, I had to go and try my new ATV, get eaten alive by mosquitoes. Did I say mosquitoes!!! OH yea they were all over me, they sure had fun with me tonight.[mad] And there is my buddy Trippleplay loosing all the skin off his fingers from pulling hooks out of stripers.
I do really feel like crying right now.

From what I hear the run is going to be better then the Spring run. Tripleplay could not keep his bait in the water, soon as it hit bottom WAM fish on. The bay is also loaded with Gator Blues 10 pounds and up. It does look like we might get some rain. But I know its going to be real cold. You guys and those that are wearing those tight swim suits, make sure you bring plenty of warm cloth. The Boat has a big cabin so room is no problem[up]
