HOTTT weather is here and even hotter beach bassin’ is here. I had an irking suspicion that the tides and conditions were right for my favorite beach spot. Fishing here is pretty basic and the bite can be pretty fast and furious even mid-day, so I brought along my little cousin to try and catch his first stripers of the year. We hit them hard as soon as we got our baits in the water. We had over a dozen fish in short span, and could have caught many more. Most were in the 31″-36″ range. These size fish are a blast on surf gear, especially when you can cool off and fish at the same time. Awesome way to start off the Holiday celebration!! Enjoy the 4th…go ‘merica.
