Saturday June 5th
This was a birthday present from a young wife to her husband. If she keeps this up I know their marriage will last. LOL
Anyway, we tried to start a daylight but the storms just wouldnt let us get on the water. We waited around for about an hour and it did clear up. Started off on the Holiday Hump with fairly poor results 1 Sandie. I moved to several different spots and finally found a good concentration of fish near finger point. We unfortunately had to make a bathroom trip back to the marina. When we went back to the same area we finished limiting in about an hour and then tried trolling for some Stripers with no luck unfortunately. They were very happy with the 50 Sandies anyway. The technique for today because of the wind was trolling the Hell/Pet and it accounted for just almost all the fish. I wish Mickey and Nicole the best, they were a fun young couple and a blast to fish with.
Sunday June 6th
First of all I would like to say thank you to any World War 2 veterans today. Without your sacrifices none of us would be able to enjoy the liberties that this great nation has and that includes fishing.
I had a boatful today! There was Robert, his father DT, DTs other son Brent and his son Nathan. Today I decided to use live bait and it did payoff. I started us off over on Tallmans Reach with no results, we marked a lot of fish just no takers. I moved us back across the lake to the Spillway Hump where we managed to get a few nice Blue Cats and then we moved to the Wolf Cove hump and on the first drop began catching fish.
The keeper Stripers were scarce with only 1 being caught and another 5 smaller fish around 17. We did catch 22 magnum Sandies and a couple Blues around 3 to 4 pounds each. The action slowed so we went in for lunch and came back out to the same spot as the day before and once again were in the wind. We finish the day with a hundred Sandies, 1 Striper , 1 Hybrid and about a dozen catfish. So all in all they were very happy and are already planning another trip soon.
The water is remarkably clear even with all the recent rains. The Sandies and Stripers are moving fast when you do find them. The water temp is in the upper 70s by afternoon. The larger fish came from 30 plus feet in depth with limits of keepers coming from 15 to 20 feet deep and holding on the first drop offs from the shore.
E-mail me if I can be of any use or help to you in anyway.
