Fishing Family Hits the Jackpot! Mom catches the fish of the year!!!

Fished a nice family from NYC today. Dad, mom,  a 4 year old sister, and 6 year old brother. We caught fish until we couldn’t catch any more.  Kids caught a couple dozen nice bluefish, dad caught a big sea bass  and mom caught my biggest Striper of the year.  Her fish was fat and 49” which puts the fish over 50lbs. The picture doesn’t do the fish justice.  Anyway, mom caught the fish on a 15lb test spinning gear and the fish ate a 1oz chrome jig in 15’ of water.  We measured the fish , took the pic and released her to make baby Stripers and grow even bigger.  Weather was hot, but nice, off shore and we had to dodge one thunderstorm. Otherwise a perfect day.  Looking forward to seeing this gang again next year.
