I had return client Pete Aubuchon of Philadelphia, PA along with his daughter Maria on a Bay & Inlet trip. We worked the inlet area throwing soft plastics and both went 5 for 9 on striped bass with the biggest being 26inches. This was both Pete and Maria's 1st ever striped bass - awesome job!! Pete had a much larger bass (most likely keepable), but it became unbuttoned at the boat - with the lure still intact and no teeth marks (definitely bass). After the bite died out, we worked some prime spots for fluke and ending with close to 40 shorts and 3 keepers (18, 18.5, 19).
