Riptide

6/2 Daddy Daughter Striper Day (REPORT)

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

Today I had Mike and his 9 year old daughter Samantha on the boat.   

 

Sam is an avid fisherwoman but has mostly been relegated to fresh water.   

 

We ran out in pea soup fog and hit the first ripline.   Within a cast or two we checked stripers off the list for Sam.   We did a few more on that rip and moved to better action.  

 

After a short boat ride I found pile of big gulls over bass feeding on squid and butterfish.  Here my crew went to work jigging Spro bucktails and throwing Hogy Lures Protails.  

 

The fishing was solid for several hours and we put up some excellent numbers.   By the time the tide began to slow Sam had over 50 bass and a few blues under her belt.   

Then I figured we should add to the species count.   Short run and a change to Epoxy jigs added scup, seabass and searobin to the list.   

 

Finally we headed back towards the ramp, but not before being diverted by a few gulls on yet another rip.  Unweighted amber Hogys racked up another dozen in about as many casts.   

 

Overall just a great morning with a fun crew.   Sam's skills were impressive for her age and both she and Mike were a pleasure to have on the boat.
