This report just came in from StriperDave - visit him at http://www.striperdave.com

I fished my local jettie tonite at sunset thru dark.  I thought I was going to get skunked, however as soon is it got dark I started making my way up the jettie to shore. I noticed a very subtle roll in the water, and new it was a striper.  I made a few casts with no luck.  I kept moving and making my way back.  I didn't see a swirl but I was stopping every so often and fan casting.  BOOM,  HOOKED UP.   I thought I was snagged at first until he made a run, WOOWEE, NICE FISH I THOUGHT.  He zzzzinged my reel a few times and I got him over to the rocks.  I was so nervous I was gonna lose it I stepped into the water (not deep at all, didn't even cover my shoes). I got him close enough to grab and he slipped the first grab.  Got'em back over and the second grab was a success.  There was another fisherman there to kindly take these pics.  Not the best pics in the world but good enough.  NICE FISH, NICE FIGHT. 

Til' next time  HOOK'EM UP
