61 pounds and 4 oz. says it all!!!!  The largest Striper ever landed on the MISS SUSIE or the FIN FINDER and the largest Striper I have ever seen.  The monster of a fish bit a double rigged white parachute.  The bait she ate was a 12 oz white parachute with a 12″ white shad.  The lighter bait on the same double rig had a 34 inch fish hooked up at the same time.  What a catch!!!!!  I knew the fish was big, but I was not sure if it was heavier than my personal best 57.00 lbs which was landed in 2005.  The scales at Rudee’s Inlet Station Marina proved this fish was my personal best.  The fish measured 52 inches in length.
The fishing action down here in VA Beach continues to be very good.  And we have a few slots still available…..

For a single day trip we have February 11th still open

For the two day package deal we have February 18/19   or   February 24/25 still open.

Thanks and enjoy the pics of a really special fish…

Our 2008 Chesapeake Bay Season ended with a bang with some of the finest Trophy Striper fishing known to mankind. The fall trophy season this past year was without a doubt one of the best fall trophy seasons most can remember. Lots of big fish close to home, it just doesn’t get much better. Since the Chesapeake Bay season closes on December 31 and the fishing action is red hot in VA Beach, Virginia we move operations to the still open season waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Our first trip of 2009 was on January 2nd and the Trophy fish were biting very good. We have fished every day since the 2nd and had great catchOur 2008 Chesapeake Bay Season ended with a bang with some of the finest Trophy Striper fishing known to mankind.  The fall trophy season this past year was without a doubt one of the best fall trophy seasons most can remember.  Lots of big fish close to home, it just doesn’t get much better.
