Until May 2nd. What's so special about that you ask? That's when I caught my first striper last year. When you say 20 days it just doesn't seem that long now. Can you tell I can't wait to start fishing? I'll probably start trying in a couple of weeks. Actually, I'm going to the Vineyard the weekend after next to visit family and I would bet that there would be fish on the island by then. They usually see fish a few weeks earlier than we do on the North Shore. I just might have to bring a rod with me and get a line wet. It's almost time. I think I'm going to make it.
