This report came in this morning from Dave Yost, aka Striper Dave (http://www.striperdave.com). He was out trolling with some friends and it looks like they did very well.  It appears Dave is back on the water again today so look forward to another report soon.

What a beautiful day on the water! We left the dock at 7:30 a.m. and had lines in the water at 8. 

Our first fish was a nice 30 incher at about 8:30 on the way back line running a tandem with big silver tony spoon.  Our trolling depths varied from 40-80 feet and we were zig zagging and sticking right around bouy 83A. 

Our second fish was boxed at approximately 11:30 - a nice head shaker at 34 inches caught on small 4 arm white umbrella with a purple head chute and glitter green shad. 

It was a pleasure fishing with Tom and Capt. Jerry! It is very cool how most fisherman are just down to earth people and easy to get along with.  Capt. Jerry has a beautiful Whaler and the set up was perfect.  I really enjoyed a beautiful day on the Bay with good company.  Thanks again to Capt. Jerry for taking us and putting us on the fish!!
