It doesn't get any better than this

Cloudy and warm, water temperature 85* and Clear
Tony had the honer of taking these two boys out yesterday Striper fishing.
How wonderful to teach these future fisherman the joy of the outdoors and the satisfaction 
of reeling in fish like these. I was fishing beside them with my clients catching fish after fish but I got 
distracted by them reeling in fish. Thanks to their parents for giving them the opportunity to dream about
the outdoors and the memories of the day.

Another Good Morning

Cody, Shaun, Tremson, Keegan and Brett

Cloudy and Warm, Water temperature 84* and Clear.
Today Tony and I had charters so we worked together to put our clients on fish. There were spells of pure chaos and time of patience trying to catch bait after we used up the early morning baits. It was a "catching" kind of day, the fish wanted to eat. This is a picture of Tony's clients taken at the marina. I picked my clients up at their dock and did not have a stringer large enough to hold all of our fish on the boat.
   Wow, what a fishery!

Lowrance Screen Shots

I have my side scan set on the upper half of the screen and my sonar on the bottom. You can see Stripers on the sonar between 30 and 40 feet. The fish were feeding up over the 35 foot flat on the left side of the screen but once I got out over the deeper water they were inactive. I have my upper limit set to 13 feet because all the fish I saw were very deep.
 This is a school of feeding Stripers. We had numerous rods hooked up at once. You can see quite a few fish out on the side scan as well. If you look up in my history bar at the top of the sonar page just above the 1 you can see the bulk of the school we were fishing. Notice all the streaking going on. The Stripers were feeding on White Perch. Most of the Stripers we caught that day were around schools of Perch.
 Here is another school of Stripers. Notice my dead bait being drug through the water column at 25 feet on my sonar page. We had just boated a bunch of Stripers and had not had time to change out that bait.
This is a picture of the road bed that parallels the 208 bridge. You can see how it is undercut when I come up from 40' to 27'. This is where the pavement stopped and the old bridge began. A couple of Bass are holding right on top of the road. How do I know they are Bass? We caught them.

A Good Saturday Morning

James, Nick and Ryan

James's dad Rob fished with me yesterday and had so much fun James
wanted to try it this morning so Tony took them out and "Spanked" 
the Stripers. Tony thinks they caught almost 100 Stripers by 11.
The Barr family better have plenty of room in the freezer!

Rob Barr and Family

A nice Bass

Sunny and Warm, Water Temperature 86* and clear
Today Tony and I had clients so we double teamed the Stripers today keeping our clients on fish. We hit numerous schools and went through about 600 baits today catching fish after fish. Everyone had fun today and there was plenty of fish to take home to eat. Both boats caught Largemouth Bass also. Lake Anna sure is a good fishery.

A fun Friday
