H-Day and I can't wait to get to the weekend for some plinking!

Scrummy


I'm not giving up my stripper fishing secrets; not that I could use them now anyway, but 30+ years ago I was getting the limit. They were beauties too. Then the warden showed up, and put up a  "No Fishing" sign and strictly enforced it.

Well since strippers were out of question i went striper fishing instead....

It was about a 2 hour drive to the Marina, I got lost twice finding it predawn... Angry
Finally rolled into the boatyard almost 20 minutes late... Ouch

We immediately loaded and launched.  The marina was smack in the middle of the Chesapeake so we didn't have to go far to reach the fishing grounds.  The boat ran planner boards and we had 18 to 20 lines in the water once trolling.  It was the first week after the Spring Trophy Season.  We managed to limit out before 10am.  We were back at the dock and the Captain cleaned our fish for free.  I got home by 12 noon (cause I stopped and had lunch on the way home)....

Considering the lousy weather it was a nice day and everyone went home with a bag of nice Striper filets
It rained all the way to the boat but let up upon arrival.  Drizzled off and on most of the time we were out.

Rained on the way home, but I didn't care.  We we first started trolling only 2 other boats were nearby.  We when headed in there were dozens in our immediate vicinity, I guess the word had gotten out... Tongue

Bud, have you ever seen this much rain? By my count, we're at 6 straight days with moderate to a lot of rain and the forecast has rain every day until next Tuesday now....unreal.

For cheap American beer it's not bad, but I'm not a beer drinker so what do I know.

Yeah, it's definitely solid for a dirt cheap beer. If I'm going low end it's PBR or National Bohemian (Natty Bo) aka "the ole one eye"

YUCK!

That is not a pleasant thought to start this morning!

Hope everyone is well and looking forward to the weekend.

My Saturday plans are to avoid seeing the royal wedding and the FA Cup final.

Both pointless spectacles designed to keep the plebs enthralled...
