Fished with Amanda and Tyler from Colchester, CT today. Tyler is an experienced fisherman and Amanda, well, not so much….but what she lacked in experience she made up for in enthusiasm. We only fished a half day but were lucky enough to get a couple dozen nice fish. Caught 6-7 Stripers to 28” and loads of bluefish in the 5lb range. Amanda needed ever so little help but once she got the hang of it she was able to get her fair share of the fish. The day started windy and we got wet but was worth it. At the first tide rip Tyler made maybe 5 casts and BANG…..he hooked a nice Striper. From there we fished our way west and caught fish in every rip we fished. These 2 kept me busy boating fish the whole trip. End of the day almost back to the dock and fish started busting under birds in the river. Turned out to be Snapper Blues but even then we caught a couple. All In all fantastic day. All fish were caught while chasing birds on 15 lb test & all their fish were released and are still swimming. Looking forward to fishing duo again.
