Too tired to post much of a report now, but Capt. Aaron Kelly put us on the big stripers!

We are heading back out tomorrow for more. 11 caught today ranging from mid twenties up to 48 lbs.

Congrats!!!

Aaron charges. He and DOA are hardcore. Only thing I don't understand is were those his gold reels? They look too hefty and shiny for his liking. He is too blue collar so I am assuming you brought those with you.

It's also pretty cool that he stayed in NC when alot of the other guys around here migrated to Virginia again(yeah I'm talking to you Donnie).

I'm finally back home after my 6 day getaway. My 53 "not being able to fish" streak is OVER! Here are some more pictures from the both days.

It was great fishing with Carey again! He was our lucky charm! :icon_puke_r: Man, that 48lber was incredible..

Matt, thanks for hooking me up with this charter, letting me crash at your place and for the awesome new kayak! I can't wait to get it rigged up for some drifting the back bays.

Matt, by the way, someone stopped me on the way home to ask where he could get my Malibu kayak. I told him I only knew of one anywhere near Virginia Beach and he was a great guy...

thanks for the referral sam! you want to know something kinda funny. I have very little local business right now. I have sold 5 kayaks. 1 kayak to a NC resident, 2 to maryland residents, and 2 to an ohio resident. thank god for the internet!
