11/3 Bucktailing the Cape May Rips

Well, with the 15-20, gustin 30 knot forecast out of the North, the only option today was the Rips off of Cape May Point.  With the high tide at 8:30, we were able to catch the last hour of incoming at Prissy Wicks in a 3-5 foot chop.  The sea conditions were a little dicey, but not terrible, and we managed to get two good strikes, but neither of them stayed glued.  We putted around Eph Shoal off of the gunmount for the slack tide and once the outgoing started we tried again on the inside Rips at Prissy Wicks and worked our was out.  The inside was way too dirty and full of seaweed, but the conditions outside were pretty decent with about 2 feet of visibility in the water.  Unfortunately we had no marks of any kind on this tide and we called it off as the wind got to a stiff 25 knots.  No November DE Bay stripers yet, but they will be showing up any day now…
