  6. Again my rod went off. I felt bad for Captain John so I told him to get this one since he was driving the boat. I told him to release this keeper because the bite ...more was good and I figured we would catch a few more keepers.

    Striped Bass with a Bomber

  7. This was my second keeper. We tried several different color patterns but my choice was the hottest. I’m pretty sure Chris had another short in between.

    Striped Bass with a Bomber

    1. yeah it was bad...
    2. This was when we thought it lifted. WRONG it was here to stay. And there was guys flying around at full throttle. We were a little nervous about being crashed into. ...more The pour kayaks were almost slammed into a few times from the GOOGANS!
    3. just to be clear, none of these pictures are edited in the background...that is the fog we had to deal with...

  8. Chris hooked into two shorts by the time I finally hooked my first keeper. We tried blind casting for a while but only hooked shorts so I asked John if I could drag ...more a lure behind the boat since it was so foggy we couldn’t see fifty feet beyond the boat. It paid off.
