4/31 Evening

Postby DarkstarCrashes » Sun May 01, 2011 6:24 pm

Fished last night on a creek feeding into the lower bay, encountered my first worm hatch. In addition, there was tons of bait in the lights- silversides, crabs, grass shrimp. The fishing was downright silly, caught more stripers in four hours than I have in the last year total. For about an hour I hooked a fish every cast, ended the night with over seventy stripers and over a dozen hickory shad. My thumb is still throbbing.

Glad I didn't head out this morning. The fish would have been full.

Looks like great fishing.

DarkStar, you sure selected some good water. Nice job.

About that thumb, clean with bleach-water mixture (10% bleach) coat with neosporin
ointment and wrap for 1 day.

I have gone to using a glove.

Great report! Nice case of striper thumb! It will heal on its own!
