Trolling tonight (first time in a boat here, ever) along the CBBT.

Hung a 34 inch Striper, weighing about 18-20 lbs.

Will post a photo to prove it tomorrow. :cool:

Spent a lot of the time with my head hung over the side chumming.

It was rough out there. I have a strong stomach, or so I thought. That rocking was a bit much for the ole equilibrium to handle.

One nice fish. Got him all ready for supper tomorrow night, if we can eat that much!

Cheers!

Not doubting that fact...........except

rules are rules. All set at the start.

In all likelyhood he crossed all the T's and dotted all the I's.

We won't know anyway til the final day of the contest. Anonymity I believe was one of the rules. So the not one single submission is probably all we're going to hear from sandflea til then.;)
And that would be because flea's keeping right in line with the "honor system.":cool:

well i missed the point of the link. i said it was a nice fish but he said that he had caught the fish on board the boat. the rules state that the winner had to be caught off the shore or a pier. so i said to bad he couldn't enter the fish. even though it is probly better then what will be caught of shore.

Baddog,If history repeats itself,SB will be the place to catch 40+ inch stripers.(December,very cold)

Wore them out last year till my arm and forearms were about to fall off.

The bigguns were chasing 10 to 12 inch trout.......

NICE fishy

Way to go on the Striper... Maybe a glance at the old 'seasickness' thread will help you avoid chumming on your next outing. Then again, maybe it's what got their attention!;)
What lure did you fool him with? Pretty work. Fish on

Zigh

See Da Big Fish!

Too late for any contest... It's already marinated waiting to be grilled!

We measured it at the boat and did not weigh it with a scale, but it went 18-22 in that range. Huge fillets.

Caught it on a Chartruese Stretch 30. Can't take credit for knowing what to fish with, but I am going to give a shameless plug for Lighthouse Bait and Tackle.. Darvin suggested it, and made me a heckuva deal on a nice boat rod and reel. Even rigged it with 80lb and all I had to do was toss it in.

Fish was caught next to the bridge in about 50 ft water. That was it for the night except for a mullet that my friend snagged.

As to my "chummin" It built up for an hour and waited till after I caught the fish to start the old "heave-ho".
