Multigenerational family fishing Black Friday by Jerry Nichols

After plenty of turkey and football on Thursday, we hit the water on Friday and Saturday fishing for stripers off IBSP. We connected with fish about 2 miles out with two overs and a couple shorts on Friday and then got into the slot fish on Saturday. We weren’t able to get out Sunday but heard from others that the morning was epic with a huge school of fish (and huge fleet of boats) just 1-2 miles north of the inlet. My 9 yr old nephew, Jake, caught his first stripers and had the best time. See video clips and check out his channel        Jake with another Striper #fishing – YouTube

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.
