SUMMARY :
Finally, the first striped bass trip of the year and the first fishing trip with my brother of the 2005 season. Although we only caught one fish apiece, they were nice healthy specimens that put up a fight like no other freshwater fish around here can match. My brother's fish went 17.5" and weighed 2 lbs. 11 oz. Hopefully this is the start of a great striper season.
