Today I fished out of Saltaire with Mark and Steve Epstein and Dave. We had a good day of fishing for striped bass during this early spring run. We had to contend with a crazy amount of bluefish but there were some striped bass in the mix and we caught a few and missed a few and had a good time.
Here is Dave and Steve with their fish of 22 and 18 pounds.
It was a beautiful day on the water with a great group of guys.
