Yes, I do.
Now that shirt is lucky no matter how you pronounce it.
Since I'm a fish guy, would you tell me a
*little* bit more about it...
Like where you caught it, what species, fresh or
salt etc, for those of us who care about
*cough* bass ...
Looks like the stripers are running, I'm jealous man! Boat? Surf casting? Fly rod?
I've always enjoyed surf casting myself. Standing on the beach with a bucket o' beers, watching the surf, talkin' BS, hands covered in Bunker blood, it's hard to beat. Poor man's heaven.
I'd give alot to live as close to the water as you Jeffey. BTW, David Mix is also an avid fisherman, he fishes with Lou Dileone alot, and Lou taught him the bass (instrument, not fish) trade. Every time he calls for a bass I get the latest fishing report from him, and a standing invitation for some fly fishing for blues on the next visit, which I shamefully haven't taken him up on yet. I'll holler if the trip ever comes together, maybe you can break away from the bench and join us!
Sure Thor. It's a salt water striped bass caught on Long Island, NY. 17 lbs, 35 inches-not a trophy by local standards but I was happy to catch it. Good eating.
What is the minimum size limit down there?
Was that recently? I thought the striper season was over. I'm with John, were you out boating, or surf casting?
Being in RI, and being WAY overdue on paying my personal fishing dues, these things are
So 'fess up some more!
Our limit is 28 inches. Got that guy last nite fishing a 3oz bucktail with a twistertail. I fish the riprap at the bottom of the parkway bridges. No boat, just a 12 minute drive from my house then climb down on the rocks and start fishing. Oh and a lite rod and 10lb test-it was a good fight. One of these days I'm gonna hook up with a 50 pounder and then I'll be sorry!
We have the freshwater version down here. Lakes along the Tennessee and Cumberland rivers have some spectacular striper fishing--especially in August and September. And as you say--really good eating.
You do mean Lakes right? Please tell me you dont "eat" ANYTHING that comes out of the Cumberland River
Not to worry about that Dave. My angling is all done on the Tennessee. I take it from your response that everything coming from the Cumberland automatically contains 11 secret herbs and spices.
Perhaps you could use that fish's head as the model for your next scroll.
Damn, bro! Nice catch. Where was this one when I was visiting? (Didja get yer ribs, by the way?)
I'm surprised that nobody has pointed out yet that there is one guy who really knows his scales!!
