I've been fortunate enough to fish for a variety of great fish. Big bull reds, monster pike, tarpon, jack crevalle, amberjack, king mackeral and a lot of stuff in between. But nothing gets my blood pumping like striper. Not sure what it is about them, but the second I hook into a decent fish my heart starts racing and my knees get weak. I love flyfishing for a lot of different fish but when the striper bite is on there is nothing better in my book.
We had our first decent front push down this weekend. Lots of migratory birds high with the north wind to their back. Approaching cold fronts in the fall seem to always get striper in a feeding frenzy. The fishing this morning started off a little slow but my mid morning I was able to find a pattern and get into a few decent fish.
