Im sorry if Im mistaken, but I have a hard time believing you didnt care about catching large. If I recall correctly, you make an annual pilgrimage to the tip. Im guessing you banked on big fish there, but if Im wrong then I apologize. I realize it boils down to more than just to the catching but Id be surprised if you were there for just schoolies

It's cool. No, I have never cared about catching fish. I just like fishing.

Now don't get me wrong, I try very hard to catch fish, and I like catching big fish, but I'm just as happy catching tog or small LMB or schoolies.

I will admit that the big one I caught on the Bucket made me speechless. That says a lot for me.

I remember meeting Ricky Mikey and Dicky at the tip....
Most honest fishermen should not have to make any excuses if they are accused of targeting large fish. Whoever claims they are just as thrilled catching a schoolie is being less than honest.

Maybe it's because when I first moved to the Cape in the mid 90's all I fished for was schoolies.

I just like fishing. Whatever I catch I am thankful for...makes getting skunked not a problem.

Zimmy, the last thing we need at the Canal are Red Drum. You'll have every jamoke in creation there

No boat, back in the suds.

so Chris,i fished well over 130 nights this season,and most of those nights were fish under 28 inchs,and yes i was thrilled each and every night i caught fish,and there weren't many nights where i didnt catch fish. i can say in all honesty that i enjoyed this season as much as 3 years ago when i fished the canal 4 to 5 times aweek,rarely catching anything under 25 lbs with most fish over 30,and i have the slips.i just happen to leave my ego home when i fish and ski

I think most of us older guys have to consider themselves lucky to have experienced some of the best striper fishing ever and while we all might wish the stocks were at those levels again soon, I'm sorry future generations might not get so lucky.

I also consider myself lucky to have been able to share some of that with my one son who loves fishing and we also shared some epic smallmouth fishing in ME, with one 3-4 lber coming over the side all morning long. The fun of the morning being relived in front of a roaring camp fire at night will get me through any down time we have in this fishery.

Agree with GotStripers on this one, and also was able to share with my now 34 yr old son. He caught his first on a brand new small rod/reel combo from Bennie's at Dunn's Corner when he was about 14 years old. Didn't reel, just walked backwards till the 27.5 inch fish came on to the beach in Weekapaug. Dropped the rod/reel in the sand, ran down and practically tackled the fish... "Can we keep it?" No, a short... Has loved fishing for stripers ever since.

Those were the days. I bumped into a lot of the old guard out there back in the day: Dangles, Habs, Bassmaster, Ice man 6, BigFish, SlipKnot, Flaptail, Tatoo Bob, Scarecrow, Redlight, BackBeach Jake, Chris L, and of course the regulars: LI Fish VT, Tuna, Jim Manning, my family.

Now you might not even see another fisherman on the beach in the middle of June. Sad

seals + plovers =
