Wed. I did a scouting trip with a few friends to see if we could get back on those big bass from the weekend. We went out and still found mackerel pretty thick, jigged up a bunch for bait for the day and headed outside Boston Harbor to see if we could find those fish. Well there were still bass in the same area, we workod the area for a while, I boated a nice bass around 24 lbs, Joe caught a few nice keeper bass in the 32 inch range that we released, we also picked up a few blue fish and dogfish. Then I got a good run and lost the fish as she rolled in the leader and came off. Not 5 minutes later I was into a good fight, got the fish to the boat, netted her and she was a huge fat 45 1/2 inch 40 lb Striper. LIFE IS GOOD, Pam was up next and she also got a nice fat bass that was 26 1/2 lbs.
