Maybe we can trade trips some day. I keep a 25 Grady-White on the Chesapeake. Fall striper fishing is good; usually trolling, but sometimes fly rod is ok. Also I have a Maverick I take down to the Indian River/Mosquito Lagoon, FL. I can usually put you on reds and trout, but to catch them with a fly rod, you have to be able cast a fly 75 ft., accurately. Last two guys I took (my daughter's boyfriend and a buddy) couldn't cast accurately. Reds in that area are plentiful, but spooky.
