View Full Version : Finally Broke the Ice

Late report from Monday on the SJ end of out going tide. Bait fishing for stripers with the wife and put eel on my second rod since I caught a undersize sturgeon on the same spot two weeks earlier and bang! Just short of 41" and I can see why people get hooked on catching them. Fish did two out of the water flips right at the boat and thought for sure it would come off with a barb-less hook. (used a circle hook ) For the stripers, only caught small 17-18" males that were not yet ready to spawn, good sign for weeks to come. Water temp was up to 59 degreehttps://scontent-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xtf1/v/l/t1.0-9/11060296_10200341407493475_4930705257946251147_n.j pg?oh=39204acf3f157181884df64ef9fbd476&oe=55BDE153s.
