Keeper striped bass caught today.

Striped bass caught on May 8th

We got some Striped Bass fishing in today after the thunder storms rolled by. The mackerel were not as thick as they were the other day. It took three of us about 25-30 minutes to catch 20 or so. They were in closer to Gurnet today, about a mile off of the point.

We fished the incoming tide in the local rips and were getting fish on just about every drift. We caught 11 striped bass with 7 of them being keepers. Biggest fish was 32 inches. Not a bad day for early season stripers!
