We fished right inside the inlet, picking up Stripers one after another. They were all in the 24 inch class but Pat landed two that measured near 30 inches each. By 8:00 am we had lots of good light overhead and so I headed on to the flats. At first Pat had trouble seeing what I was pointing out but soon caught on that it was shadows I wanted him to see. After a few missed cast he hooked up with a nice 27 inch Striper that took line way down onto the backing. The second fish came harder, Pat had a shot it turned, looked at the fly in the distance and turned away. Pat got his line back in and let out a second good cast .....way in front, in the fishes path and we waited for it to get close. Strip, Strip, Strip, Stop! Strip, ....Hook-up! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz , fish on. 28 inches and thick
