Chris and Christopher Brennan with Jim Chen

November 2nd, 2009: Cloudy then Blue Bird Skies, Water Temperature 62* and Clear.
Picked the guys up at 5:30 and went to catch bait. Threw for 4 hours with no results, the sun came out , the bait bunched up and 3 casts later we were fishing. The first ledge I pulled over 4 out of 5 rods started shaking, only one hooked up but it got off before getting to the boat. We pulled the mouths of creeks, across points, hit humps, basically fished from Stubbs Bridge all the way to the 522 Bridge and other areas and caught 5 Stripers. I hate to make excuses but I think we missed the early morning bite and once the front came through the fish turned off. We were glad to get the 5 fish. Christopher is pictured with his first Striper.

Jim - great time (again!) even with the low bite. Thanks to you we still got some decent fish (two of which are fillets sitting in the fridge as tonight's dinner - I assume the same for Chris' fish!). Appreciate the effort and will plan to see you in the spring.
