View Full Version : Hello everyone

I must admit, I have been lurking for a couple months and have thouroughly enjoyed reading everyones posts.....Finally decided to register. I primarily fish in the Chesepeake Bay but do get over to the DB and Atlantic from time to time, really anywhere Stripers can be found.
What really prompted me to post a message is the recent post about the Outer Banks and how thick the Stripers are. I go down there (usually) twice a winter once for Stripers and once for Tuna. My first trip this winter was back in mid December, supposed to go catch Tuna but was way too windy off shore. The Cpt gave us the option of rescheduling or going for Stripers...we opted for Stripers. We made it out through the inlet and set out lines (trolling mojo's)...within 10 minutes we had a double header of 20lbers and it was non stop after that. We were back on dock having our limit of 20-35lb bass cleaned by 10:30am (we didn't leave the dock until 7:00 am). I have fished down there a lot and haven't seen the Striper fishing as good as it has been this winter....as for the second trip of the winter....heading down tommorow and fishing Sunday (Stripers again...skipping the Tuna this year)....I hope it warms up a bit...but if we catch fish like we did in December...braving the cold will be worth it.

Welcone Kracka and good luck this weekend! Why are you skipping tuner???
01-16-2004, 05:09 PM
I am skipping Tuna because the stripers are so thick...also economics as well...much cheaper for stripers. I just bought a new boat and need to save a little money for all the ammenities that go along with such a purchase.

Do you really need to use capitols, BIGGESTJACK?

Biggest- I am a striper addict, so that will be my target species 90% of the time, mostly in the Chessy. I do dabble in off shore fishing, a couple charters a year and a couple buddies with nice rigs down in O.C. MD, so I will be able to contribute to the offshore forum as well, however I will mostly be learning from those guys over there.

Welcome aboard!!! :D :D :D
Welcome aboard here at TBB. I am glad you posted this. I have heard the people down there are crying they have no stripers. Can you get us even more info on how healthy the waters there are with stripers. Thanks and have a HAPPY DAY.

Welcome to the 'Barn,Glad to read you got into some nice fish. Our Nov. was great so It goes to figure that you guys down there would get some quality fishing. It also lends some weight to the migratory issues we talked about last month ;)

We have a great group of guys and gals here, we're looking forward to your posts this season.

Welcome Krackafish you might find this hard to believe but there is another barn member that lives in Oxford. You might want to look him up - Jamiefish - real nice guy fished with him a number of times.

Well, Thanks everyone for the friendly welcome. I did make it down to the Outer Banks for some fishing on Sunday....the weather was aweful, fog, rain, wind, cold, but we made it out in some fairly rough seas. The stripers were pretty scattered but did manage to pick up a few after resorting to umbrella rigs, which to me feel like reeling in a five gallon bucket that has been tied to my line....all in all the day was nothing to write home about...but then again any day fishing beats a day doing just about anything else.
