August 18, 2006 MV

Caught another keeper tonight, 30+ inches. This fish was taken at the exact spot as the previous keeper on the same sand eel imitation and medium line.

Both keepers this week were caught on an out-going tide, my favorite tide to fish along State Beach.

August 15 MV

Landed a keeper this evening, 29 inches. Caught the fish on a sand eel imitation (a.k.a., striper crack). The fish gave a great fight and took line a couple of times.

I had a good feeling about today, as it rained all day and was on the cool side. The skies cleared in the afternoon and all was calm.

The fishing has been a little spotty of late. Lake Tashmoo is loaded w/ bait. I was there early morning and there were plenty of very large stripers at the mouth of the channel. With all the bait, the fish are tough to catch. My favorite spot along State Beach has been consistent, but no keepers.

Early August on MV

The action's fairly consistent at night, but no keepers (yet!). I caught a half a dozen small'ish stripers on Saturday night, at my favorite spot on State Beach. The action at Lake Tashmoo and East Beach is non-existant.

Two of the fish last night were approaching keeper size, mid-20 inches.

All of the fish were caught on a sand eel.
