Jim, Jim and Alex Hoskins

December 21st, 2007 : Cloudy and Cold, Water temps today 41* uplake to 54* downlake, Water Clear.
Picked clients up at 7am at High point and since it was cloudy I went right down to the Dam area and set out a spread of 10 Planner boards and a couple of free lines. I couldn't get 2 baits out before we started getting hits and for the next hour all I did was bait hooks . After a couple hours of that madness I worked my way back uplake and set up in 15 to 25 feet of water and pulled it the rest of the day. Some of our hits came in 22' of water and some came out of 5' of water, no rhyme or reason, no pattern. By the end of the trip the guys were glad to get off the water, it had been a long cold day for them although Alex couldn't believe the day went by as fast as it did. It always helps to have plenty of action. The guys kept a couple of fish to eat and released the rest.They could have done better today if they had brought their good fishing buddy Rupe but gossip has it he is running for the House of Delegates in W.Va. Good luck Rupe and Happy Holidays to all.
