Simrad Screen Shots

 These are two screen shots using chirp with a TM-150 ducer and broadband on 200khz. 


This is the same shot as the pic above using downscan on a 3D ducer
 
Here is a nice screen shot on sidescan of a rock pile

This time of year we are fishing huge schools of Stripers. Good electronics and the knowledge of how to use them and how to interpret what you are looking at separate the boys from the men, the difference in catching 15 fish a morning or 100 fish a morning.  If you would like to step your game up a couple of notches and catch a bunch of Stripers book a trip with us. Contact us and reserve a charter, you will be glad you did!

Lake Anna Stripers

Anthony and Michael
Rain and Clouds, Water Temperature 78* and Stained

The boys wanted to go fishing today and take advantage of the awesome bite on the lake but wanted to sleep in so DP came over after eight and we hit the water about nine. It took us about an hour to put 150 baits in the tank then we were ready to go have some fun. It took about ten minutes for me to locate some Stripers but once we set up on them the rods started bowing. It's great to see numerous rods hooked up and the boys running all over the boat trying to catch up. I was baiting and DP was removing the fish so we could have constant action. Next thing we knew we were out of bait and the boys were wore out. 150 hits in 90 minutes, that was crazy! We were so busy we didn't even know we were getting wet from the rain. Always fun to get on the water regardless of the weather. This week myself and our guides caught and released over 1,000 Stripers. We use and highly recommend Circle hooks when releasing fish. 98 percent of the time the fish is hooked right in the side of the mouth allowing us to easily unhook the Stripers and return him safely back into the water. This fishery is made possible by the excellent management of the Va. Department of Game and Inland Fisheries Biologists headed up by John Odenkirk. We are seeing dozens of schools of Stripers over 200 feet wide some days at times on our side scan and we have only worked an area of the lake about 3 miles long. I will post some screenshots soon showing some of the screen shots. Come on out and join us for a memorable morning on the water fishing for Stripers and Hybrids on Lake Anna.

Lake Anna fishing getting better daily!


 Mac and Hunter

Tyler, Earl and Greg

Rain, Water Temperature 78* and Stained
Today was the third day in a row calling for heavy rain and I had some clients that were scheduled to fish today but didn't want to get wet so I took three hardy soles out and Tony took Hunter and Mac out. Guess what? The Stripers obviously don't mind the rain, at least the 175 we caught today didn't. We caught so many fish we had to restock our bait tanks twice more during the morning. This fishery is the Bomb!

Quite the morning, 225 Stripers by 11 o'clock

 Roy and Bill had their hands full today with Tony
 Bryan put Dougie on some nice Stripers

 Bryan's cooler of Stripers
 
 Floyd caught over 60 fish by himself this morning.

This is what our depth finders looked like all morning. Today between
myself and two of our other guides we caught over 225 Stripers. When
you are catching that many it is almost constant action. You need to have 
at least 4 anglers on board to handle it. Today I had just Floyd and it was 
crazy in the boat while we fished for 2 1/2 hours. Many times we had four 
or five rods hooked up at once. The sweet thing is this type of fishing is just 
getting started and should last for the next couple of months. We want to see 
you and your friends in these pictures, contact us and let us hook you up!
