Details:Headed out in a lifting fog just after 6AM this morning. As I approached the middle of Niantic Bay, I saw a large 3 Masted Schooner about 1 mile outside the Bay. Even in the foggy conditions i was able to make out the distinguished orange slash just aft of the bow. The Bark Eage was anchored and security boats were patrolling around it. Headed west to Black Point and found surfacew feeding stripers in the rip. Fish averaged about 26 inches with 3 that were 30, 32, and 33 inches. All fish were taken on a olive Flat-wing Deceiver fished on a intermediate line. Just to the west a schooner appeared and was headed east under sail. This saling ship was Ocean classroom returning from a summer cruise full of students. The Eagle was to escort her home to New London. A great morning... flat conditions, got to see two beautiful sailing ships and even caught a few fish!
