|Basil and our striped bass
While on Basil's small and sturdy boat, we caught a total of seven fish! Some were bait fish, such as pollock or menhaden. The one keeper we got was a 34-inch striped bass. The adrenaline running through my body made me feel more excited than I've been in a long time. Wow, I love fishing! Some of the other fishing groups caught many large striped bass. Grace, one of our JPAs, caught a record striper! I believe it was about 45 inches long! There were so many huge fish on Fan Pier, and we got to filet them and bring the meat home to cook and eat--yum!

What an incredible week!
Hopefully will catch you (and another big striper!) later,
