I had a special charter today that was set up by Brian from Free Spool sportfishing. I had 10 year old Ryan & his Mom onboard today to catch him his first Striper. I'm not sure of all the details about him so I'm hoping Brain will fill you all in of the special circumstances. I took him to the rips first and after about an hour the tide started to move and Ryan had his first hookup! Took him a little while boat the 22 lb Bass and 3 drifts later he hooked up again this time landing a nice 16 lb Bass. Then I got a call that Chuck got some fresh bunker in & Matt Unsworth was kind enough to meet me in the Bay with it. So we set up on the hook and starting chunking & it only took about 45 mins and Ryan landed another Bass that pulled the boga down to 35 lbs. Then another 20 mins went by and another rod goes off and Ryan landed his last fish of the day that pulled it doen to just under 40 lbs! Ryan, it was a pleasure having you out there today! You did a great job!
I'lso just got the word that Mike from Coastal will be doing a mount of the 39 lb+ Bass!
Brian,
I appreciate all your help today!

Below are some pictures taken back at the dock. There were some taken on the boat today also & I hope I can get them via email.


Here's Ryan with the two biggest fish he caught!





PS. Timmy also had a charter today that I'll post the report & pics in the morning. I'm a little tired right now.

Dave,
There is and I'm going to let Capt Brian tell the rest of the story. He has Ryan the rest of the week and will post the whole reason why and how he made out. I hd a great time getting Ryan his first Striped Bass. The look on his face when he landed the big one was amazing!

Thanks Twin! I'm still smiling!

Ryan,

Congratulations to you, great accomplishment. Many of us have caught thousands of bass and have never, ever caught fish like that, myself included.

Your a special kid, all the best to you always.

Think playing with the minnow trap back at the house and feeding the seagulls excited him just as much as the big bass. Off to buarer's pond tomorrow to catch BUBBA. Thanks Joe for opening the pond up it should be a pretty cool day.
