Default Fatties of 2008!!!! Get the cameras ready!!!]

Tommy, JC and I head out for some more trophy Stripers and today we had to work for them. Started the day at buoy 18 off Kiptopeke drifting eels. Nada. Made three drifts in that general area with nothing to show for our efforts so we moved up to Plantation light. Nothing again. We picked up and ran east of the highrise to the buoy 10 area, looked around but saw nothing on the bottom machine that sparked our interest. Pushed out a bit east and found what we were looking for between the 6 and 8 buoys in about 30 feet picked two right away a 42” and a 41”. Moved a bit north to the edge of Nautilus shoal and picked another fish in the 40” range and while we were snapping pics another rod goes down and JC boats a very nice 49” fish headed home with four fish over 40” great day on the water.

50 degree water, fished the end of the incoming and the beginning of the outgoing, eels, all but one came on a free lined line very close to the boat and very shallow.

Thanks to Tommy and JC!!!

Well since it has been a long time for fishing, I had a feeling to go up and try to land a striper in the aqueduct and so went up and casting out about a few times and nothing so I moved into a bend and landed this half breed of Striper and Hybrid. I think it is a deformity at birth. Well it was 6.6 lbs and 25.5 inches long. It hit me hard. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Here's some more fish that I've caught throughout the summer and fall, I caught a lot of scoolies but not many big ones, they all were caught jigging and casting lures except the first fish pictured was caught trolling umbrellas. Most were released unharmed (I hope)

Congrats to you guys on those big ones. I just fish the aqueduct and my biggest was 30.25 lbs with a 20.5 behind it. Happy New Year and may you get an even bigger one this new year!

No Whalers huh? Damn Frank I had more hope in you!!!


So finally I have added some pictures, although these are smaller than my biggest of the season, quite a few pics of the larger fish the background is a dead giveaway to the spot so those will remain unposted. Also in the mix is my cousin's first striper ever and a rather large suprise trout I caught in the middle of the summer. All good times.

Nice fish guys.

Here are some of the better fish I, or my friends when fishing with me, have boated in the last 12 months. All of these are freshwater fish that weighed 25 lbs or more and were released to be caught again. Sorry about some of the goofy distortions but you never know who's lurking around out there and I've had some problems with that before.
