Great day of striper fishing last friday!!! Pics

We boated dozens of stripers and blues! All were caught by jigging, If you have ever jigged at 3.5 knots for 8 hours you know why our arms were going to fall off!

Nice striper!

I'll post some of mine up here in a minute. I'm not big on jigging, I do lazy circles at Lake Texoma waiting for the striper to come up and start hitting the bait fish near the surface, the I pounce. Jigs from 1/4-1/2 work great.





perfect eating size!

I'm not willing to let someone a'rock my career because they saw my photo. It's not you, KC or CG, but others. Despite advice for my activities I choose to remain somewhat anonymous unless we're cool.
