Rupe Phillips, Jim Hoskins, Randy Barnes and Jim Hoskins Jr.

Nov. 31, 2006: Sunny and 75*, Water temp 55* and stained.
Picked clients up at 6am and went uplake to catch big Gizzard shad. Caught 40 nice shad and set up on 10'flats with boards and freelines. Ran a mile of flats and points with only 2 hits so we pulled our lines in and relocated to 20' flats and 10' humps and started getting hits. Fish were not real aggressive in the morning but as the water warmed up so did the fishing. We continued to pull the humps and points and on every pass we would get strikes. By the end of the day we had 22 solid hook ups and clients kept 13 Stripers for 75 pounds and 85 year old Jim Sr. caught a beautiful citation Bass to climax a wonderful day.
It appears the Stripers are just starting to feed up for the winter now and are about a month behind their normal feeding patterns. There should be Great fishing for Stripers in the upcoming month.
