Notes

Brought out Greg and a friend of Bill Spence's (Ray) and his 9 year old son. First did the East end of woodbridge drift and caught 1 keeper on a striper candy. Then proceeded to do the log drift. Made about 3 drifts in an hour and a half which included a lot of anchor dragging. Caught 9 keepers all before low tide and then a couple more after the drift including last one near end of Woodbridge breakwater. All caught in less than 3' of water. One of the better nights and probably the best August night of striper fishing with 12 keepers in the boat.
Fierce thunderstorms had just past before we got on the water and didnt have any more show up after. Lucky for us.
