Stripers in a sloppy Friday with the Tom Lawrence Charter

Had Tom back again for his yearly double with Don, Bob, Tom, with sons Steve and Mike. Warned the guys about the conditions today, but guys said lets go for it, Left the dock at noon. Had super mate Greg who pancaked the net in 20 knot winds, and made bait on 2 throws in 50 feet in 5-7 foot seas. Went North made some drifts in Asbury and headed inshore, found the pod I wanted, hard to stay on the drift with conditons and hard moving fish. In the short window we had we went 4-6 with fish to 36lbs. Cool part of the trip was Steve landing his first Striper. Guys said it was enough to get back to Clarks Landing Dockside Grill for the crew. Bought a round for this crew to brave the conditions. Chef Hasson and Juan went to work on their Striper fillets. Teriyaki glaze, Blackened cajun style, and a Italian-style. Guys luved it, look forward to seeing them next week!
