Best day of striper fishing from the boat. Ever.

Enough said. I will let the photos speak.

Actually the photos don't do it justice really. Yes, it was epic. Saturday mornings feed was fueled like many recent epic days at the canal by a big school of mackerel that was setup just east of _Mono-moy_island. There were acres of large stripers swarming the surface just after first light chasing down anything that resembled a mack. Our boat easily threw back 30 keepers. The average fish size was 35" but the range was 31-42". The smallest was my first fly rod fish which was 27". I landed at least 10 keepers on the fly with three biggest taped at 36". The icing on the cake was getting into the Albies just off the shore of the mid-cape near Harwich.

Oh and the photos of the bait above are the bait that the false albacore puked up on the boat. Earlier in between the stripers and the Albies we got into some good bluefish action a couple miles inside Nantucket sound from _Mono-moy_ point and they were coughing up loads of peanut bunker.
