Al is a client-friend that has chartered me since the beginning of my service. For about 5 years he fished with me every Saturday of the year with the exceptions of foul weather. Living in Belize he does not come to VA. often but he scheduled a trip a month ago and flew up to see what the lake was like now. We hit the water around 9am yesterday and took an hour to catch bait then went fishing. We had already missed the morning bite so fishing was slow but we managed a nice limit. Slow fishing allowed plenty of time to catch up and BS about the many hundreds of fishing trips we experienced together. For old time sake I bitched at him a little just to get a reaction out of him. Good day on the lake.

Sunny and Warm, Water Temperature 67* and Clear
These two characters wanted to take a day off from Crappie fishing and try their luck at catching Stripers this morning so they met me at 4:30 to experience the whole process. After throwing the net 30 times they figured out catching bait wasn't so easy so we set out a spread of boards and pulled about 3 miles of water looking to catch some nice Stripers. They are holding up a couple of the fish they caught. Good Guys to spend a morning on the lake with.

Evan, David and Jeff
Evan with his largest fish ever! Over 36 inches and almost 19 pounds.
Sunny and Beautiful, Water Temperature 62* and Clear
A month ago Jeff called and said he just found me on the net and wanted to go see what this Striper fishing was all about. He said they had tried it with 0 success. We had a great conversation on the phone and he booked the first and third Saturdays in April. After spending a few hours on the boat on April 2nd I realized these guys were cool and we became friends. We slayed the fish that day so this morning I told them at 4:30am that we were going to try something a little different and target big fish. They were all in so we went and caught bait then went fishing. I started in a visible area since it was a Saturday and lured a lot of Striper fisherman in to the area. Once there was about 7 or 8 boats there we got our baits in and went elsewhere to have some fun. We took it easy and casually fished till we found what we wanted to then proceeded to work on um. We hooked up with 3 big fish all at once, turned around then hit them again. Boats were homing in on us so we left and went to refresh our bait tank. We came back and banged them again and that is when Evan hooked up with this nice Striper. In the two days we fished together we had so much fun with each other and made memories we will never forget. Good People, Good Weather, Good Fishing, Good Times....makes all my hard work worth it. Got to Love the Outdoors.
