After two crappy years of striper fishing in Weldon – 2008 was finally back to normal. While a friends wedding and other schedule conflicts (aka – all the great fishing at the coast!) prevented me from fishing my usual 7 or so days, I still managed to get up there for a few days.
While I was a wee bit early for the topwater bite, we had good numbers on fly and on jig/artificials on most days. The fly rod, as always, was by far the most productive method and we could easily put 20-30 fish per angler in the boat during a morning or evening half-day. Some nights we did much better than that even!
Taylor’s first fly-rod striper (it deserves a posting even though its a wee little guy).
