7/15 Buzzards Bay(western shore)

Friday morning was calm, clear, warm and very bright. To be honest, I believed my prospects of keeper sized bass were low. Especially in skinny water. At least I would spend a quiet day fishing with my father. Because of new homes and general busyiness, this would be our first time on the water this year.
We got way too late of a start, first eel hit the water around 8 AM. We were working structure around the Marion coast. About 8:45 I had boated my first striper of the year. A 41" beast. Great fight. I could judge by the head shakes that it was a big fish. I couldn't even hold it in the water to revive it. My father held the head and I held the tail. This monster was followed by a 39.5" fish by my Dad. Both fish came off the same rock pile in about ten feet of water with little if any tide. Amazing. This fish was also released. Except for a few blues and a couple of other good runs by bass, these were the only two boated stripers of the day. All in all a fantastic day. Two fish boated, average length 40".
