School actually started a few weeks ago for my kids but I'm talking about schoolie stripers. This morning I decided to put down my tenkara rod throw some sand worms on a hook and try my hand at some catching some striped bass. Though I would love to catch one on a tenkara rod I think the average striped bass would be a little too much for most of my rods. There were a number which were willing to oblige me but unfortunately there were no keepers today (need to be at least 28" in NYS marine waters). There were even a few large sea robins thrown in for good measure. Overall it was a successful morning. Today definitely seems like the last day of summer and I can feel the change of season more strongly than before. Autumn is my favorite time of year but I wish I could have been outside just a little more this summer. There were a number of places I wanted to hike, kayak, and fish but I guess it will have to wait till next year. Hope everyone out there in cyber space had a good summer with no regrets.
