Summer of the Striper

A new group of campers arrived at Camp Harbor View today, and boy were they in for a treat!  It was an easy pitch to convince the kids to sign up for fishing club when we were able to show off a 36" striped bass.  Bruce caught the beast over the weekend right between Spectacle and Long Islands.  It was a beauty of a fish, and everyone from campers to counselors alike enjoyed holding the fish, filleting it, eating it, and even performing some amateur dissection.

So fresh, Will could bite right in

Everyone was transfixed by Andrew's filet skills

We pulled out all the stops today, busting out the grill for the first time, and after borrowing some spices from the kitchen, the savory smells of fresh fish soon spread all over camp, bringing curious folks from all over to Shell Beach.  We're looking forward to an eventful (and hopefully dry) fishing derby on Thursday with our new fishing club.  Stay tuned for more on that!


...and after!
