Default It's Raining Schoolies

Rain and wind was the story of the day, but that didn't deter me from fishing. Protected from the elements in my rain gear, my GoPro in its waterproof housing, I set out with my 8 wt St. Croix Triumph to conquer the mighty striped bass. I launched two hours ahead of high tide and had my first fish 15 minutes later. Dragging a size 1/0 white/olive/black Clouser I picked up six fish, including one herring, before the bite died at slack tide. Once the tide started moving again I found a nice rip loaded with schoolies and started to slay them one right after another. No legal fish today but I had the water to myself and a boatload of fun on the fly rod. Watch the video

Theoretically I can pull the Mirage Drive and reverse it, but it's a heck of a lot easier to just pick up the paddle.
