My favorite charter has always been people new to striped bass fishing, especially father and son combinations. The excitement and joy of catching that first striper is a life long memory. The pair pictured has already planned on their 2011 fishing trip. I am told the son couldn't stop talking about the "big" fish caught. That joy is part of what keeps me going.
The fall striped bass and false albacore fishing season has begun. Albies or Fat Alberts have arrived in the waters of the south coast and Cape Cod Massachusetts. It is time to fish with abandon for the next month and a half. September and October are times to search for that fish trophy of a lifetime.
As I write, Hurricane Earl is making its way up the east coast of the United States. Right behind it are Tropical Storm Fiona and Invest 98. Such weather conditions will really mix things up, hopefully producing some of the fastest fishing action in a long time. Stand by for an interesting fall fishing season with blitzes someplace along the New England Coast.
Have a safe and rewarding finally to the 2010 striped bass season.
