    Big Fish!

    Yesterday morning I got up at 3 am, loaded up and towed my jet ski from Poquoson across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel to the ramp at Kiptopeke/ Concrete Ship.
    I was fishing in the Catchin For Kids/ Toys for Tots Striper Tournament yesterday. The weather was terrible 25 knot with gusts to thirty winds, steady rain and a small craft advisory. Fun on the jet ski, I felt like I was at Water Country USA and Busch Gardens in the 4 to 5 foot short duration waves.
    I ran about two miles off of the ships and put three lines out with live eels. My first drift I had three knock downs and netted two nice Striped Bass. I kept one that went 47 inches, it was a blast! Next long drift I had no strikes. Can only keep one big fish here in Virginia and that is all I need to hopefully be in contention, the conditions were getting worse so I decided to go back in. Several other boats either did not go out or came back in.
    I went back home cleaned all my gear, had lunch, watched the Bald Eagles fly around my backyard and took an hour nap. Life is good!
    My wife and I then went back to Norfolk and weighed my fish in at Vinings Landing Marina in Little Creek.
    My Striper ended up weighing 37.6 lbs! Giving me second place and $1500 in winnings! Not bad for the only person on a jet ski. Ha!
    This was a great tournament put on by Rick and his cadre of volunteers to benefit Toys for Tots, in addition to entry fees everyone donated new toys for the cause.
    Here are some pictures that I took.
