Went out sat. morning to the rips for striper,on the incoming tide, about a dozen or so boats fishing the same section, didn;t get one but seen a nice one netted next to me. Came in and flounder fished the backwaterways behind ww and got one 171/2" keeper and had a couple others that I didn;t drop back on enough and lost on the way up. On the one time the rod was really bent, was angry with myself for not waiting that extra 5 seconds or so before I set the hook. Anyway got a couple of fish sandwhiches out of the trip anyway. Was bucktailing on the bottom.
