The stripers were definitely hungry. We had our limit of 2 per man, total of 12, in just 2 hours with the biggest weighing in at 37.1 lbs.

The Fluke bite proved to be a classic opening day with our biggest at 6.3 lbs. Lots of action with an occational attack by a bluefish.

Also of note, Bernadette had a 21.2 lb Bass, the best for our one of our lady anglers this year.
