Merry Christmas To All And To All A Good Fight---Eastern Shore Striper.
I left my house in Poquoson Va. at 1030 and went to the Eastern Shore with the hopes of a nice Christmas Striper. Drifted seven live eels at 10-20' in 40 to 60 feet of water off of Plantation Light. Had one hit that did not stick around noon. Had a nice hit that did stick a nice 40 incher that was real fat at 1400 hrs. Back home by 1530 hrs.
