Wild Weekend

My wife Gail and I pulled out from the boat dock and headed out Saturday morning. I immediately noticed on my Lowrance sonar that the bottom of the lake just lit up with what looked like a giant school of fish. I hadn’t seen a school like this before, and I couldn’t quite figure out what they were. It had to be a giant school of stripers. And I mean GIANT SCHOOL!

The action was fast and furious. It lasted about 30 minutes, in the marina no doubt, so we trolled outside the marina. We picked up a 32” 11 pounder and called it a day at 8 am.

WOW! What a morning. It doesn’t get that good very often. Sunday I headed out to check some new spots but no dice. They weren’t there. Checked Washita Point, no dice. Sooooo I headed out to old faithful.

I got my trolling rigs going and it wasn’t long before fish on. I got a 28″ right off the bat and put him in the live well. I got a few box fish and then the big fish started. I must have let 10 fish over 20 inches go. I got a 25″ at about 11 am and put him in the box and called it a day.

What a weekend! Lots of work done on the boat slip and some terrific fishing.

Till next time!
Captain Kurt
