She jumped out of bed, saw me loading the truck for my day on the water, and asked me if she could come along. So she did. She’s just 9 years old and off to catch stripers with her dad on a Saturday morning. She took a cast and hooked up immediately in one of my favorite spots. Then after some fishing we checked on some oysters, and fiddled around with some oyster gear. Jane then proclaimed the need for us to actually go clamming somewhere – digging for steamers. So we did. We ended up meeting our neighbors (the Flaherty’s) out off Goose Point for some steamer digging and did quite well. We ate the steamers on the front porch before dinner.
