Cathy from Bayside reports some striper action off the beach, mostly shorts but a few keepers, mainly on clams or plugging. Wayne Crowley has been pretty lucky, with two last week. Alex finally reeled one in off the surf. And of course Linda Davoli always gets fish plugging the surf. I think she is up to 18 maybe more.
