South Cape 4-24
I needed to get out and test the latest additions to my equipment list, St. Croix Avid 8'6" spinning rod with a Quantum Cabo PT40 loaded with Stealth. I walked and worked the beach for a few hours with no luck, started heading back to the parking lot and saw a single splash about 30' off of the beach. I cast to the spot and bang, I had my first Striper of the year, a 12" whopper. Gave me a little lift so I fished for a little while longer with no luck. Talked to another guy by the golf course that said he picked up 2 mini's for the day.
The new rig worked well, cast lures from 1/4 up to 1oz and the reel is braid friendly. I just can't wait to put some real fish on it to see how it performs.
