Good time of year to get those old pics out and post them ..

Here is one from the old school back when striper keeper limit was 36".. I found this hole that I would go to everyday with my buddy after school with chunks and everyday without a miss we would pull in a couple keepers .this was the first keeper I ever caught so I was pumped . All with shitty rods and out of a 13ft Delqay dory.. This was in the fall and came in after dark and my dads friend who was a photographer just happend to be over the house, wound up being the Xmas card that year

This picture was taken by a good friend of mine named Tim Coleman he was the editor of the New England Fisherman magazine for many years till he passed away a few years ago (he was found dead in the sand by one of his fishing spots in RI) RIP Timmy. Anyway the picture did appear first in a article he wrote for Garcia's Fishing Annual & then again in On the Water magazine a couple years ago. Me and Timmy fished together a lot and you can see my Dodge house in the background.

Not an old pic but he was only 6.

My son in 2010 in Florida. Great picture although no fish in it. We must have caught 100 fish that day tho- not a single one longer than 8".
