My first striped bass experience could not have been more fun. Despite a bit of rain, my old pal Pete Scott had us in fish for most of the day. We started a bit slow, learning the strip and sink rate, changing a few flies but we got into fish, and then we really got into fish on the surface with poppers. It was an absolute blast catching 18-23 inch stripers on the surface. We found birds, and fish busting bait, then it was just a matter of getting your fly near the packs of willing stripers. It was an absolute kick. Today was the pre fishing day for tomorrows Duxbury One Fly Tournament. Another report to come.
