fished the incoming tide at the jetty at hrbt and caught 1 20" off a top water lure, caught 2 off a homemade bucktail chartreuse/white skirt, caught fish up to 6 lbs off a white 3/4 oz shad head with a 6 in chartreuse curltail, fished stopped biting so we switched to a grey 6 in curltail and caught fish and the biggest fish caught was a 36 in and weighed 18.5 lbs, soon after the bite stopped and we went home, but it was my biggest striper pulled in out of the surf and caught on 12 lb test, we caught fish steady for about 3 hours almost every cast and if one wasnt pulled in we had 2 or 3 hits on the retrieve so all in all it was a good way to end thanksgiving this year, we fished from @ 7-1130 pm

Finally!! A good report! Sounds like you had a good day. You not only caught fish, you caught more than one. All the reports lately are skunked....skunked....skunked...one.....skunked. It's good to see somebody get into some fish.

heavy fish

Good job on the great fishing! And, thanx for the report. What kind of scale did you weigh the big guy on? Just wondering.. Must have been a real fatty. We had 2 healthy 30"+ fish that totalled 19lbs. is the only reason I ask about the scales. Pretty work!

Zigh
