November and December were hot!!!! This has been one of my best seasons ever. Lots of big fish. Very few trips out did we not land a 40+ inch fish. (We have a lot of 40s to drink!) The sucess can only be credited to great team work and refining everything from rigging, hook sets, fighting, boat handling, better landings, and the lucky 40.

Lots of fish in the 30 inch class. Typical night would be 4-5 each of this class of fish.

The 30s can quickly get dwarfed by bigger fish moving in....

Nothing better than starting and ending the Chesapeake Bay fall striper season with good buds like this....

Ocean season just outside the mouth of the bay is still going strong (if you want to do battle with the fleet), and catch and release fishing inside the bay continues to be excellent.

thats pretty sweet right there bro...nice, very nice. That last fish is a toad! Look at how nice a fish that is: horsehead, thick shoulders, perfect length to girth and thats a serious broomtail! Sick dude, absolutely sick.

How are you guys comin tight on those critters? You dredging? Just curious, not trying to snipe any of your tactics...

ps....sick skull and crossbones action you got goin on there on the bottom of the post!

Thanks!
We sight cast to them under the lights of the bridge.
These are just schoolies in this pic, but it's pretty much the same with the bigger fish just not as many stacked up.

You can also dredge and get them too.
