The weather in New England still hasn't fallen into full-blown sun and warmth, but the salty friends we said goodbye to last Fall have finally returned. Striped bass are back! That means the times of good vibes, sunshine, cold beer, and good friends are nearly here, whether it seems like it or not. Summer is right around the corner. Who knows what it will be like, but I'm going to enjoy the hell out of it. I've fished the striper run every year for the past decade. Even though I haven't fished as much as I'd like to yet this year, I'm ready to get on the water. The tides have finally turned in our favor. Raise a glass for striped bass.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
