Woke up early Thursday and went out for about 20-30 min. was blowing to hard and was cold so i went back in. Ate some breakfast and waited for it to warm up a little. Around 11-12 i took the girlfriend and went back out. This time I went across the river to a spot that usually holds a couple striper. I had caught some 4-5 inch mullet earlier with the cast net and put one of them on a carolina rig and set it out. It wasnt long before the rod bent over and we had a fish on. Handed it to my girl but she is new to fishing and is still learning, the fish got off . I switched to top water and got a fish on my third cast, it was a nice one and ran for some structure and broke me off . 0-2 so far. Not long after i hooked up again on top water, the fish missed it twice but i kept working it and third time was the charm. Had a good fight and a couple min later had a nice 22 inch striper in the boat! As soon as i got the hook out the carolina rig was hit hard. Handed it to the girl friend and tried to coach her up. This time she did great and a couple min later she had a 20 inch striper in the boat! Had a couple more hits on the carolina rig but i think the mullet were a little big for whatever was trying to take it. All in all we we hooked up on 4-5 fish and boated 2. Was a great day.
