While not the king of the sea, I got this striper, my first ever in the surf, last week in Monterey Bay, CA. I was using my 6/7 Beulah switch rod, Hatch 7 reel, OPST 325 grain head and 10' of t-11 with a homemade fly. I'm stoked for getting more!
way to go Rick! they finally showed up down here, I got two this week, will post some pics.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
