I've hinted at some new water several times lately , but for now I'd rather keep it secret. Why? Because it has a population of Striped Bass that I want to test out first before I start writing a steamy tell-all memoir. Not that I have a huge audience or anything , but fishing spots posted online anywhere have a way of drawing anglers , especially if the fishing is good. It promises to be good , maybe even great at Lake X , so we'll leave the names out for now.
Lately , I haven't done much Striper fishing. I won't dispute that , but I've honestly spent more hours on the water fishing for landlocked Stripers over the past 15 years than most people have spent fishing in their entire lives. I know Stripers. For the past two weeks , I've
|You can't catch them if they're dead!|
|Here have a Striper , jerk!|
|And another , you big pink-chair-sitting-coke-drinking sissy!|
No. You know what? I said I was gonna catch a Striper , and I did. Me 2 , Fish Gods 0.
All kidding aside , I only had about an hour and a half to tinker around the boat launch while I waited on the Mrs. I didn't expect to see these two little fish , and was really fishing more for bass and bluegill so they were a pleasant surprise. They did give me a wealth of information (as did the zombie fish above). Mainly that the water temperature is fast approaching the range it needs to be for the fish to move in for the winter. After my friend goes on another scouting trip , we'll probably be on the fish. It made my day to catch a Striper out of there before him , regardless of size , since he's a local. HA! First blood is mine!
Have a good week!
