Topic: first trip of the season

I come here a couple of times a year. fished in nearby Avalon this morning off the jetty. Using squid I got a bunch of skate :( and an undersized striped bass (26 inches). It was cold but good times.

Re: first trip of the season

That's not too bad.   At least you got a striper.   I have done few early season trips trying to catch stripers on the fly, but the water is still pretty cold for this time of year and have not gotten the first one on the fly yet.    With the warm weather of this weekend the fish should start anyday now.
