09.21.10 Two stripers in rough surf in Avon

Went back at it this morning in Avon near the inlet. Hit the backside of the jetty and picked up two stripers, one around 16 and the other over 20 inches. I started again at 520 am in Monmouth Beach where it was jut too rough, stopped by Allenhurst and Asbury Park before heading south. When I pulled up I said to myself, "What I am doing out here?". Just then I scanned the beach and saw a guy with a bass on, on a fly rod. For the next 1-1/2 hours I made casts into the rip and wash and landed the two I hooked. There is tons of bait in the wash. Spearing, mullet, who knows what else. Should make for a great few weeks if it stays around.
