This report came in from Striper Dave after several quick weekend striper fishing trips to local marinas and a few jetties. As usual, Dave catches fish where others don't think to fish.

Strong west wind and still pulled one out on the go to bomber plug aka, the school bus. A slow retrieve was the ticket tonite!
From Saturday night - November 28, 2009
I went jetty fishin tonite at one of my local spots. There was not a lot of action - very slow pickings. I came away with one nice schoolie. I was fishing the tip of the jetty with a very, very slow retrieve of my 3" shallow swimming bomber plug. Schoolie striper hit right at rocks. He must have been holding up tight. I wasn't sure I had him at first - very sluggish (cold water). Just a few light head shakes and I realized I had a fish on. I thought I may have been snagged at first. I got'em in - took a pic and gently released him back to the water. Oddly enough just after I caught him someone lit off some fireworks a few hundred yards away over the Bay. Overall a nice nigh. Striper and fireworks, pretty cool.
