Well, what can we say other than the striper fishing continues to be on fire right now and I hope all of the father’s out there had a great weekend. Yesterday was your day and if you were not on the water, hopefully you enjoyed your day!!!
I really wish the weather guys would get the wind predictions right. This summer so far has been all about the winds. Saturday when we left Brewers Plymouth Marine we were greeted with North winds blowing about 20 instead of the 5 knot or less that was foretasted. Sunday was more of the same the only difference was the wind was from the exact opposite direction coming out of the South. For those of you that have been on the our boat before, you know that means a sloppy 3-5ft sea and it can get wet. Well, Reel Time Fishing charters made an upgrade over the winter time to help combat the wet rides when the winds blow. We had a full enclosure made for the T-Top that completely keeps the wind and water out. It has made our Hydrasport Vector feel like a much larger boat as a result. With the trim tabs all the way down, the Twin Evinrude 150 E-tec’s from Eagle Marine pushed us along at a comfortable 23 knots in the slop with a very dry ride. Check out the photo of our new enclosure and turning this boat into more of a battle wagon than she already was!!!
With that said we had two great trips over the weekend producing lots of keeper sized striped bass along with a few trophy fish thrown into the mix. Even the captain was able to get in on the action. Both days we crushed the fish on light tackle with the vertical jigs. The Lowrance HDS 8 kept us on the fish all morning long.
Striper fishing should continue to be hot of the next couple of weeks as we head into the holiday!!! We have some spots available over the July 4th weekend and the following week so get in on the action and book your next adventure with Captain Roland Lizotte, call 774-437-1882 for details.
