Scored at the shore

Spent 4 days at Holgate, NJ (beach) in the RV. I was trying to get in on the Striped Bass fall run and beached this one.



It weighed 28 pds and was 44" long.
I'm getting up there in Griff's class.

17# mono. Was the first time using 10/0 circle hook. Sucked was large. Had about 1/2# chunk of Bunker on as bait. This was my personal best, except for tuna.

My personal best was a 47 pound king salmon. My wife never fails to remind me her best was 175 pound halibut.
