This was an afternoon charter consisting of two Dads each with a young son. One of the boys had a birthday and this trip was a surprise gift!! Our ride over to Block Island, which usually takes about 45 minutes each way, was a little bouncy. However, when we got there the water flattened out.
Mike, the mate, put out a parachute and we started trolling while he worked the parachute. Five minutes later we had a big bass on the line. The birthday boy caught his first bass. We caught a total of five bass, four keepers.
It was a great RI striped bass trip and we hope to see these anglers again in the future.
