Winds had us hiding in the few places where we wouldn't be blown out to sea. Fortunately, there were striped bass there. We tallied a total of 28 schoolies on both swimbait/jig combinations and flies...had doubles going several times.

I tallied a striper on a large bunker-pattern fly that Capt. Chris Elser gave me. Charlie had luck with a smaller all-white clouser.
One man's curse is often another man's joy.
Anyone know what these birds are? They're in the sandpiper family, possibly dowitchers?
