I launched my jet ski from the Crab Creek boat ramp in Lynhaven Inlet early this morning and was on the fishing grounds of Cape Henry and trolling as the sun was trying to peek out of some morning clouds. The conditions in the Atlantic ocean off of Virginia Beach were flat and glassy. I had my first Striped Bass hooked up on the troll in 10 minutes. As I am reeling in a nice 30lb fish two whales break the surface within 20 feet of my ski billowing out a spray misty sea water. I was in fishing heaven!!

After an hour of trolling I saw several Charter Boats Pick up and run South a couple miles, I followed them and arrived with about 20 other boats. As soon as I started Trolling I was hooked up, every boat around me had multiple fish on. Not much bait but plenty of fish. I caught eight Striped Bass in about 40 minutes! All on a 32oz green mojo and tomic. I was back at the ramp and on my way to work by 0930hrs. Wish I could start my day that way more often! Here are some pictures from today.

Thanks for the replies. A Mustang Survival Suit is $300-400. I have a dry suit under that, it was about $450. They are the most expensive clothes I own.
I have had the stainless stringers for several years, I bought them at a dive store but I do not remember which one.

Stupid Fishing

Brian, I gave you a shout out as we passed you while fishing on the Flat Line. I call today "Stupid Fishing" because all you had to do was drop a line in the water and you were hooked up. After bending our rods all morning at Cape Henry, we went up north and slayed them on surface plugs. The rockfish were so thick you could get out and walk across their backs. Lots of fun on light tackle.
