Day After Tournament

By Martin Friedrich

NCM_0102I had gotten a fishing report from a friend Saturday night after our tournament. He and a friend fished an area and gotten 9 keepers. If wasn’t for the weather coming in they might have gotten there limet. Next day my neighbor went there and gave me a call about 10 o’clock. So I loaded the boat and headed out there. The fishing was on open bottom in 45 ft. Of water. Got 3 keeper’s biggest was 21in 3lb 11oz. Also had about 20 shorts. The last fish I caught ( pictured ) had no tail. It was healed over, was 11ins. Was released in good health and quickly swam away.

Fishing Facts

Of the fifty United States, thirty-eight have a striped-bass record. New Jersey has the largest striped-bass record—a 78-pound 8·ounce whopper that was caught in 1982. The state with the smallest striped-bass record is Iowa. That landlocked striper weighed only 9 pounds 4 ounces and was caught in 1983.
There’s something fishy about beer these days. Fish Tail Ale is popular as ever, and New Jersey’s Flying Fish Brewery is one of the state’s largest specialty breweries. There’s also Washington’s Wild Salmon Organic Pale Ale, Florida’s Land Shark beer, Delaware’s Dogfish Head beer, and two versions of Stingray beer—a lighter version from the Cayman Islands and a dark beer from Canada.
The triangle fly is probably the most unusual of saltwater flies. It’s one of the few, if not only, flies tied to a treble hook. It’s also barely a fly at all, because hardly any material is used. It is complete after tying the two straw pearl twinkle flashes and the tiny tuft of natural squirrel, leaving an entire hook fully exposed. Incredibly this barebacked treble fly is a knockout when it comes to sea trout.
