Carl Lovisolo joined me for a Lengthy Island Sound outing out of the 4 Mile River ramp on Thursday.
First spot we tried didn’t appear to be holding any of the hoped for stripers, however we did have a number of bluefish bite-offs, totally on topwater, and bought one respectable blue within the boat.
We moved a couple of miles and located extra bite-offs. Sure, I had my 50# take a look at yellow-eye chief on. However not on each rod. Appeared like each time I wished to supply them a change-up, and grabbed a rod with out the heavy chief, I’d get in bother fairly shortly.
We had been having some enjoyable with the blues, however we had been actually after stripers, so we left there and took benefit of the lifeless calm seas to move to some offshore reefs. Most produced nothing, however we bought into , if short-lived topwater striper chew on one. Footage? Nah, I had the GoPro operating, so why cease to shoot pictures of fish that had been an inch or two shy of being slot-fish?
Nicely, one good purpose to take action would have been that any person had a full blown outdated man second when clearing the outdated recordsdata from the μSD card, and by no means put the cardboard again within the digicam. So I’ll have been taking pictures all day, however I wasn’t recording in any respect.
With the overall lack of wind, the warmth bought to us fairly early, and we had been headed for the ramp simply after midday.
