My Son Got a Nice Striper

Got a call from my son a couple days ago. He was fishing the lower end of the Connecticut River from the drift boat. In April and May the river fills with schoolie bass, migrating mainly from the Hudson River which lies a 100 miles to the west. They supply great early season fishing, especially on light gear.

By June bigger bass arrive. My son tells me he got a nice striper on a plug, a jointed lipped swimmer I believe. The fish measured about  34 inches. Wish I was there.
