I took my gear and hit the Rt. 50 bridge last night. I felt a little out of place considering I did not need waders, a head lamp or sand spikes...

However, I did catch my first striper of the fall. He was only about 20", but with no bridge net, 12lb test mono and that current ripping back under the bridge, it was a FIGHT! :boxing:

It is a whole different world up there, but I think I could get used to it.

Thanks. It was cool to watch the hickory shad flashing on the surface. The one other time I fished from that bridge, I was with Oliver. The water was so clear, we could see flounder on the bottom in the shallows... At night!

for as long as I been fishing OC I never ventured onto the bridge yet. One of these days I am going to miss the turn to AI and hit the bridge!

Jim,

If you need a bridge net, you can stop by and borrow mine.

I have a nice bridge net from fishing other piers. Thanks for the offer though!

There are some real characters up there late night...

It is why I bought my Jeep. The fishing IS good though!
