March [weather] Madness

March came in like a Lion and continues to give us Cold, windy, nasty and inconsistant weather. Water temperatures started  out this month in the upper 50's but yesterday it was hard to find 47 degrees. We have had to cancel many charters due to the weather but April is just around the corner and it is one of the best months of Striper fishing on Lake Anna.

Tough Conditions

Kevin, Kevin, Kevin, Kevin and Kevin
Sunny, Cold and Windy
Friday we had quite the storm blow through and the bad effects of the storm lingered for a few day afterwards. These tough guys wanted to go so I obliged them. The main factor in where to fish was the weather. The lake is muddy up lake, the water temperatures dropped 6 degrees, Bluebird skies and the wind was hateful. The wind trumped all the other adverse conditions so I opted to fish out of the wind as much as possible so I could at least have some control of the boat and also not freeze my clients. We worked hard to catch what we did, fish simply did not want to eat and most of our hits were short. Guess who caught most of the fish?
