Uncle Joe Stripes Again

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Upper Bay
Location: Podickory Point

When asked, “Hey Uncle Joe, when are you going to take my dad and me out fishing?” The reply was, “Since I just purchased a pair of life vests for guys your size, today is that day! Get your mom’s permission and be on your dock with your father at 12 noon sharp. I’ll swing by in the boat and pick the two of you up.”

With twin engines at wide open throttle, it was a short cruise to Podickory Point, Joe’s favorite fishing spot this time of year. Armed with 4 new 6 ft. medium action fishing rods, purchased at Anglers Sports Center pre rigged and ready for rock, a chum bucket and a few bags of fresh Alewives it took less than 15 minutes to lure the stripers to the boat. Before 2 hours passed five keepers were in the cooler, the largest measuring 32 inches. The second largest, a sweet 29 incher belonging to 7 year old Lawson Cates of Annapolis who was all too eager to hold the Striper up for a photo shot to text back home to mom.
