I went out for my first Maryland striper trip this morning. Since I fish shallow water, I don't expect too much in the summertime since most of the big fish are out hunting deep.
I missed a couple of large fish that burned my drag well before I could think about setting a hook, I started to wonder if some big stripers were working the shallows today.
The tide slacked and I start to slowly jig around structure hoping to pick up some larger white perch when I hooked up with this beast. At least now don't have to worry about this fish I missed.
