...... and that came at the very end of the day when we were hauling the lines up (nephew and I each put a half fish fillet in the freezer) .

We were a little bit luckier with the weather than forecast . Winds were a few kts. lighter ... 7 am. was 16-g/25 , 8 am. 13-g/18 , by 11 am. 9-g/11 it calmed some and pretty much stayed that way for the rest of the day , maybe even got a little better .

Wind chill temps. were still pretty raw though ... 7 am. between 20-22 F. and improved to 29 F. by 5 pm. .

Is this type of fishing worth it ... NO WAY . But it's the nephew's boat , it's what he wants to do , he's the captain and he's going to do what he wants and hunt Stripers the way he wants , and unfortunately that seems to be trolling (very unproductive method) ... ugggg !!

The only good thing about it is I love my nephew and enjoy being with him as much as possible . I just don't feel I can stand to go through another year of this trolling insanity with him though . There are much more productive ways to catch Stripers from the Chesapeake .
