Thursday, December 5th, Cloudy and Warm, Water Temperature 47* and Stained.
Guide DP took this motley crew out on Thursday before the storm to catch some Lake Anna Stripers. They got on fish early but also got busted early by other fisherman forcing them to leave the productive area they were working. After catching 6 Stripers right off the bat they had to struggle the rest of the day for 4 more fish. They still enjoyed the day but their thoughts were with Tim's brother Tom. The weather forecasts some cold and nasty weather moving in which will turn off some fish in the upper portions of the lake.

Anthony took Vinnie from Ferguson Ent. out on a very cold Monday to see what the cold front did to the Stripers. By the looks of these two fish it looks like the front turned bigger Stripers on. Vinnie wanted to take his jacket off so he could get his picture taken in his purple and pink polka dotted shirt but it was a little to cold for that.

DP and Billy
Cloudy and Cold, Water Temperature 51* and Clear
DP took off work a little early today so we went out for an afternoon of Striper catching. The weather was perfect for fishing for Stripers, cloudy and cold. After spending a couple hours catching the right bait we set out a spread of boards and pulled them for about an hour taking a dozen hits but boating only 3. DP and I decided to discard all the baits on the lines, go catch some more and relocate which we did. The move paid off immediately. We had almost got all of our baits out when the action started and it was tough to keep up with the fish. We had four or five hookups over a rock pile but instead of turning around and hitting it again we simply kept going. We had steady action for 2 hours straight, constantly baiting and reeling in fish. We kept the first dozen and threw back all the other fish we were catching. It is hard to tell by this picture but these were some very nice Stripers. This stringer weighed over 80 pounds! This was a special day for Billy, he played hooky this afternoon from work [ Tires Unlimited ] and enjoyed his 52nd birthday on the water reeling in fish. His shoulder and arms were burning the last 6 or 8 fish that he reeled in. Billy will definitely remember this birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BILLY

Sunny and Warm, Water Temperature 56* and Clear
Fishing continues to be very good even after the rain from last night blew out and the bluebird skies blew in. This morning fish were feeding everywhere. As I was going to catch bait we would see fish and throw lures at them, catch a couple 22 inch fish, run a half mile, see fish, cast to them, catch a couple more 22 inch fish till I realized all we were going to catch on lures were punks so we left them and caught some nice baits. Now the fish were in trouble. We had run about 3 miles to get to the bait with fish everywhere so I put out my spread and pulled the three miles back. We didn't make it quite all the way back before we had gone through the 50 baits we had caught earlier. It was now 10:30, the wind was howling and Earls arms were sore from reeling in fish. He is holding a stringer of the first 8 fish we caught this morning. We lost count of how many we caught because at times we would have 4 or 5 fish on at a time. We would simply boat the fish, throw it overboard then reel in another till we had no lines in the water. Just a killer morning of fishing on Lake Anna.
