First 50#, from the boat on topwater in about 6 feet of water... bright sun on a dying tide. Took me 12 years to catch this girl.... ( that's when I started striped bass fishing ). Released in fine shape.

I'd rather not say, it was embarrassing this year. Let's just say I had no keeper bass this year.

It is nothing to be embarrassed, it’s the sign of times we heading to...

Same here. I put in a ridiculous amount of time this year. Probably could of taken advantage of a couple more opportunities. All in all the year was pretty good for me. Some real big blues off of the kayak and a pretty good fluke season. Looking forward to kayaking in 2018. Hoping for some giants.

 Your not the only one! Fished spring, summer and fall (March 15 to Dec 21) caught plenty of fish- blues up to 16 lbs  and bass 22-24 inches.  It’s better not to complain at least I enjoyed all those sunrises and calm evenings in the back!

Put a lot of time in around the new moons. Where I was fishing 20-35# fish were everywhere on every moon cycle. I don't consider it of much of an accomplishment comparatively speaking but I did pin the 30# boga many times. The fish that broke my jigging rod (rated 5-10oz.) had to be in the mid to high 40's and was this past season's biggest for me. What a year! :th:

43", surf, lure...was a disappointing year for me both in #s and size. One factor was I just couldn't make it work to get to the places, at the correct times, that I had logged big fish in past years. Weather, access, and family issues lined up in a way that left me wondering "what if?"

 

211 Striped bass and 31 were over 28" in 2017. I don't weigh fish.

Measured top at 43 at the fork. I'm saying she was 45 for sure. Bottom was 44.5. Caugh from shore at the same spot months apart using eels.
