I've never gotten such a late start on striper season but when I finally got out with my friend Joe we managed to kick things off right. The photo above was the first fish to cooperate. Not a bad start when the first striper takes you into the backing. We caught three fish in an hour and a half. The largest was 28" and the other two went 25". The fly in the fish's mouth is a variation of my coyote crab pattern.
