Just saw a picture of a 58 pound 10 ounce striper caught locally this week - beautiful fish.

John,

Let me know if you ever want to meet up to fish the Toms.

Have to get reacquainted with that water this year.

Thats a fish you release, beautiful fish and a 30 minute fight is awesome. That is a breeding fish that should have been released.

that have been a bunch of big stripers near AC this year (not 58+ but 20-30 pound + )

night time, shedder crab (plus lures).

key is the night tides, near high.

not that I've gotten them, but met one who has.

me? I'm sitting at home (well, work right now) getting old.

John, still want to hit the Toms with you, let me know :)

MikeB. I'm not taking sides but the other side of the argument is that it's an old fish past breeding time and also it's a fish of a lifetime so why not keep it.
