Default Not a bad start to the season!

Went out from shore yesterday and landed this beauty. She was 33" long and weighed 18lbs 4 ounces. Earliest striper I've caught in the last five years of my records. Here's a pic:

Yup. Scapping you-know-where. They were SLOW to get at first, but once the sun finally cleared the trees and hit the water for a while, their numbers increased. I only needed a dozen and stopped after that, but still threw the rubber stoolie around just to check on the numbers of fish and they were definately cooperating. As a sidepoint, my dad and I went out in my boat on Friday ( Holy WAVES, Batman!!) and from Dutchman's Landing up the just north of the RVW Bridge, we marked three LARGE schools of herring! My fishfinder shows fish as symbols, and we were counting over fifty each time which means there were literally HUNDREDS of herring in those schools! Low numbers my ass!
