Back out at the OA, beginning of the tide Rod (Reelhabit) hooks up and it's battle on..

A sturgeon virgin no more with a nice 52"

Then my pole goes off and it doesn't feel like a sturgeon..

And to my surprise it's a nice striper

Then I hook up again and this time I feel some serious weight

The battle went on for about 20 minutes before finally getting a fat 58" in...

This was one had some serious girth and weight, it fought like a 70"

Then Rod's rod goes off and he gets this fat little Starry in..

Dean thought I said we were going crabbing so he pulls in this whopper... something he can add to his 2008 species list...

JL was also with us... he started talking about how he got lucky on his first trip, now he thinks he has to pay his dues...you may have jinxed yerself John!

Had a blast, thanks for joining me on this trip, John, Rod and Dean!

5 trips in a row, doubles on each of them ...kinda eary

Ghost/herring combos again..

That's a damn nice 57" there, Mike!
Bet she was full of eggs. We have yet to catch a pregnant one.

I'm guessing you got your boat running. =)

See ya out there.

Oh, wow. That is a fatty male!
Is there a way to tell the gender without slicing the fish open?

Cheers,

I think it's pretty impossible to tell what gender it is without cutting it open..
