Fish usually hit when you least expect it; like on your way to the bathroom.

"Here's a CPR from our striper run this April, caught just south of Annapolis MD, on the South River," said John Hostalka. "We were fishing over and area with shallow sandbars and the day started out great with multiple schoolies, but I just couldn't find any of the big girls.

About mid morning I had lasted as long as I could without giving my bladder a break. I knew there was a porta potty back at the beach so I turned and I pedaled my Hobie as hard as I could cause I had to go! In 4 foot of water my rod went down hard and the drag starts peeling off. I had to turn the boat and chase down the fish to keep from getting spooled. 36+ inches. My biggest fish this year...so far."
