If you ever get up north in the summer, try flats fishing for Stripers (or strippers, depending on the day) on the Monomoy Flats off of Cape Cod. Stripers are boring fish to catch. . . unless they can't dive and must RUN.
Never been, but know many who have. I'm more a fresh-water guy. But I would like to give it a whirl. Spinning, not flycasting.
I cannot tell you how long this road shall be, but fear not the obstacles in your path, for fate has vouchsafed your reward. Though the road may wind, yea, your hearts grow weary, still shall ye follow them, even unto your salvation.
