I actually went striper fishing this morning and I didn't get a fish but I did find the plug below that got caught on the rocks and broke off. I lost some weights, hooks, etc. last week so I was happy to find this along the rocks.
The weather was absolutely beautiful all weekend. Below are a few pictures of the city and the other views from where I was fishing from.

After fishing, I went into the North End of Boston with my wife, my wife's sister and my wife's brother-in-law. There was a celebration called Madonna Della Cava. The history is here: Madonna. Below I captured the tradition where dollars are placed on the statue. We had some good Italian food after the parade.
After enjoying an adult beverage, we walked to the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Geenway (RFK) on the way to Faneuil Hall (FH). RFK Greenway replaced the elevated interstate highway and now is an oasis that connects several Boston neighborhoods. Below is a picture of the Custom House (CH) and here is it's history (wikipedia).
We had a busy weekend with several family parties and getting into the city.
Oh yeah ...I was skunked on the fishing equation but just being out there was good stuff. I may head to the Cape this coming weekend so there probably will be some more fishing in the works.
