David Wabeke and Garrett Miller

Cloudy and Pleasant, Water Temperature 82* and Clear.
Caught bait, picked the guys up at 5:15, went and caught a little more bait and went looking for fish. I had decided before I left the house this morning where I was going to set up first. I pulled up to the area, showed the guys how to deploy downlines, and before we got many baits out we started taking hits. For the next half hour we simply could not catch up. We all worked great together but the action was too much for just 2 anglers to handle. At one point we all were stepping over fish on the deck because we did not have enough time to put them in the cooler. Garrett caught this nice Bass right in with the Stripers. David is holding one of the first Stripers of the morning. After about an hour of frantic action we pulled out to take a minute to enjoy the beautiful morning and to catch a couple more fish. We limited out by 7:30 this morning with the guys keeping 12 Stripers, a Bass and a Catfish. David is volunteering with the Virginia Game and Inland Fisheries to help provide training to a homeless shelter in Fredericksburg. They are teaching the less fortunate some training on How/Where/ What to catch fish to supplement their diet in a healthy way. David is taking each species we caught to the class tonight to explain not only about catching the fish but he is going to demonstrate how to properly fillet the fish and prepare it for a meal.
