My cousin Joe & I booked Capt. Brett Taylor for Wednesday night 4/27 for a 7-10 PM charter for bay stripers. It was cold with light winds so we fished a number of spots on the West side of the bay.
Joe just turned 78, 8 months before me and has a few medical issues. However, we started fishing together over 70 years ago but haven’t in 55 years or more, so we wanted to take advantage of this opportunity. We talked about how life & families get in the way of doing what you used to do.
That said, the excitement of competition from our youth was alive and kicking. I was in my glory as I caught the first four. Then, bummer, he caught the next six. We went back and forth after that. We finished with 10 each from 15 -25”. I caught the largest, so I have some bragging rights.
Bottom line, we plan to enjoy a lot more “youthful” competitive fishing in the future for as long as we can.
