Got a call from my buddy Scott for Ed and I to join him launching his boat and then trial the boat for a few hours of fishing. So we pushed off around 11:00am to a stiff outgoing NW wind and after a short trip to the grounds we started marking the Stripers. In went the stretch plugs and it was game on trolling them on light tackle. By 2:00pm we boated over 20 stripers keeping our legal 4 man limit before calling it a day.
We put a lot of wear and tear on the Netkeeper putting our clients on fish last season so I have been spending extra time getting the boat ready and ship shape for this upcoming season. Right now I am targeting being in the water the weekend of April 21st.
It looks like we are going to have an early striper run so don’t wait.
