|Nicely done! I've never managed to land a striper on my Daiwa SP yet, so hats off to you. Also Rockaway is such a gem out there in Pacifica-- if that's where you were at. Lots of different species pulled out of there, family friendly, and doesn't get overly out of control due to Pacifica state beach & Sharp Park absorbing most of the crowds.
Also how great is it when a striper, or any really aggressive fish, just slams your offering? I love watching videos of John Skinner throwing bucktails precisely because the initial strikes and rod bends are so dramatic. Great stuff!
Catch & cook. No time for selfies.
