|Details:||I hadn't been out surfcasting yet this year. The girlfriend had some family in town, and I was asked to take her mother's husband Paul fishing. Yup, no problem! Check the tides, and after some research I game plan on a spot I've been looking at for about a year, but hadn't tried yet. At the water at 7am, and 2 hours left on the out going tide. Set-up quickly two 10 foot surf rods, baited with calms. It took Paul a couple cast to get a handle of casting a set-up that big, but he learned quick. 10 minutes in Paul get the 1st bite, and get a 20" schoolie Striper, his 1st ever. We both rebait, and recast. Another 10 minutes later Paul get wacked again! He sets the hook, and the drag tells me he is into a better fish. His 1st Keeper Striper at 30" 8-1/2lbs, he was so excited, and so was I that the game plan was really working out. About 10 minutes later I finally get on the board with a schoolie Striper at 18", my 1st of the year. The next hour plus was spent feeding the crabs, with no more bites, and we wrapped it up at 9am as we were out of bait. Good stuff, and I definitely haven't done enough surfcasting the last few years. Need to change that!
