83 gentlemen contacted me for a private trip for just him self. By his request it had to be all catch and release no taking fish from the sea and only on spinning rods. He has caught many stripers in his life time 15-20lbs largest striped were 27 to 30″ range.
The 2 of us left the dock around 7:00 am and did not take long to finds the fish on top of the water. First fish he pulled the hook, second fish again pulled the hook, third fish line came tight and it was about 34″ which was his biggest but I knew there were bigger ones out there so we kept at it. Finally he hooked a beautiful fish that took him a good 15 minuted to land. It measured 42″ and 36lbs. Check that one off your bucket list. Good times!
