Fishing has been good for the big fish the last month or so and this past Sunday was no exception. I had a couple of young guys show up in their Aggie gear which is right up my alley. Most of my family has either graduated from A&M or attended. Me graduating high school in College Station came with a lot of Sundays on Kyle Field playing tackle football.
I started off at 6:15 am with my usual troll of Preston Point. No fish, uh oh. I usually pick up some good fish there. Sooooooo, we headed to West Burns Run. We started marking fish like crazy but no takers. Now come on, what is the deal? We turned and trolled with the wind which seemed to be the prepared direction for the bite.
We got to the end of the troll and BAM, big fish on. We got it up to the boat and I knew we needed to net this one. I got the bruiser in the net and the excitement built. This was his first Striper ever and it was 32” and 12 pounds. Man was he ruined, a box fish is going to look small with this one.
We trolled some more and picked up a nice 27” 8 pounder. Now both of the guys are ruined. We ended the day with a limit of overs and some nice box fish. Wind picked up to 24mph and made the day a little rough on Texoma. But we had a great time. Till next time, let’s do this!
