6/7 stipers everywhere

I hit the water around 7:30, I wanted to swing a big bunker fly I tied a few nights ago, I only managed a couple small hits, but there were fish chasing silversides and sandeels. I walked back to the jeep and strung up my 7 wt with a floater and a small black clouser, and was into fish from the second cast. I got around 7-8 fish, they were small, some as small as 14" and the largest around 20". After the action died down I moved to a nearby spot that has been fishing well, with sandeels everywhere and fish crashing them in a foot of water. I stopped by my honey hole and swung my sparse black clouser through it and came tight to a feisty 26" striper. He battled valiantly, making a dash across a small flat, in 8" of water, what fun! I made a few more casts with no other action, so I called it a night and headed home around 9:30.

  1. Nice job! Sand eels have set up shop down my way to recently. The shallow water fish get into the backing in a hurry.
