On last Wednesday May 28th, Nat and Derek came out with Collin and I to fish for their first time on the Karen Lynn. Also along were Chris Coombs, who works at the FLA shop and will be a mate on the Karen Lynn this year, and Gabe Davis who was along to shoot some video for us.
We left early and had planned to go directly to the NW corner, but we were faced with sloppy sea’s and wind out of the North, gusting to 30 knots. We quickly realized that we would not be able to shoot good video from the tower drifting in confused and big seas so we decided to striper fish inside until the wind laid down a bit.
We had an awesome morning striper fishing with live mackerel in 160′-190′ of water. We caught and released many fish with Collin and Nat landing the biggest fish, both around 40″. In the afternoon the wind had died and we headed to the bank to ground fish and had good success jigging Cod and Haddock on the corner.
We had a great day and really enjoyed taking Derek and Nat out and letting them get to know the boat, especially in rough weather.Attached are a few pictures I took (unprofessional), but as soon as Gabe Davis (professional) gets us his shots, Derek or I will post more pictures.
