Not A Bad Day At All
Was the only one on Crane Beach who caught. Cropped objects may appear larger than they are. It was around a 2 ft'er. Just shy of keeper but gave me a hell of a fight on light spinning tackle.

It was funny, I was up in Maine a month ago using that exact rig-Spro (I think) bucktail baited with pearl gulp mullet, for flounder with a chance of Striper, just prospecting. When I got home and read an article that it was the ideal set up for the early-season Striper gorging on baitfish and too picky to hit topwater, as the poor guy next to me was finding out.

Happy I got re-spooled with no less than 20lb fluoro Vanish yesterday, and that was still pretty light tackle for this little guy. I also keep a good amount of drag set so the fish doesn't bounce of the hook. We all know that's the worst. So it was wild till I got my bearings and tightened the drag.

Oh yeah, the drag was smoking away with that lovely zipping sound (music to my ears). How I knew it was a Striper. It was awesome. Dozens of beach goers crowded me. Lol

Yes, those guys will pull hard and take drag on medium bass tackle all day.
