    Boy didi learn something...never knew the marimichi had a striper population.
    Thought you were referring to Atlantic salmon........and slightly exaggerating.

    The locals don't think so. They (we) want all the strippers eradicated as they are eating the young salmon before they can reach the ocean. This was the first year that we were legally aloud to catch them. Before this year the officials were saying the bass weren't eating the salmon but now that they have cut some of them open and found 7 or 8 smolts in them they have changed their stance.

    Yup the current is pretty strong on an outgoing tide it was about 3 hours going out. It's a small dam that opens up when the tide I'd right and really rips through the trippers love it because it sucks all the bait fish out of the salt water pond.

    Beautiful fish, although I'd be a little afraid to lay it on top of my rod like that. A 25-30lb fish laying on a fly rod can be a recipe for expensive disaster.
