That left us with some time to go to far more picturesque and historic locations. We moved east quite a bit and found some fish in one of my favorite places in the world, which shall remain unnamed.
I actually ended up adding a new fly tackle species to my list. I caught two large porgies in a deep cut!
We also found some stripers working back an forth in the wash in front of a muscle bar. That gave Alessandro a shot at some more big fish. Unfortunately, the largest made off with only a sore lip, it was a very big fish but the hook just did not hold.
What a relief. CT has been difficult this spring striper wise. Some spots have produced well, others have been dead. What happens one day may not happen under the same conditions the next. I'm glad we pulled it off at the end.
