Another Great Morning

 Lee, Jason, RJ and Kendall

Sky and Tony

Sunny and Warm, Water Temperature 86* and Clear
Tony and I both had charters today so we caught bait, picked our crews up and went fishing. I rode for a little while and set up on a couple of places where we could get hit to learn how to deploy the lines and reel in the fish. After I thought they were ready I put them in the middle of a school. This situation is what I live for. Every rod bent over and the guys reacted brilliantly by reeling in their first fish each, grabbing the next one that was bent over and reeling it in. Within a minute we went from 0 to 8. We rebaited then did it again. By now Tony had got in the action and we started double teaming the school. I would loose them then Tony would find them. We hopscotched the school till both boats completely ran out of bait. We both went and caught more bait then I set up in an area that I knew we could catch larger fish. We worked it for about 45 minutes and limited out there. We were able to get off the water before it got too hot, an ending to a great day. They got to catch nice fish and I met some new friends. Tony had to stay out a little longer than us but they ended up with some beautiful fish.

A Hectic Sunday on the Lake

Sunny and Hot, Water Temperature 85* and Clear
Tony and I both had clients today so we got on the water early and put 200 baits in each of our tanks. After picking up our clients Tony went his way and I went mine. Tony was fishing a spot and I was looking for schools. After 20 minutes of looking I found a school so we set up on them and caught about 15 Stripers real quick. I called Tony over to join in on the fun but he had an issue to deal with that delayed his crew about 30 minutes and by then the school had split up. Tony found a bunch of fish out in the main lake and called me to them but after he and I worked them for 45 minutes with only catching a couple keepers we abandoned them and looked for more. We both hit a few more places then I had to go catch more bait. I put 200 more baits in my tank, found a school and set up on them. Everything went off and for about an hour we worked the fish. Tony called and said he had got on to some fish but had run out of bait so we went to him and gave him some of our baits. We both fished there till Tony ran out of bait then he went to catch more. I made a little move and we put our downlines down deeper on some fish that I saw on my Lowrance. That was the best move of the day, we popped 5 or 6 Hogs real quick to finish the day. And what a day it was...Plenty of catching, plenty of issues on the boats and certainly plenty of boat traffic to complicate fishing. One of my clients ran a hook through my finger and one of Tony's clients had the runs. At the end of the day all was well and everyone caught a bunch of fish.

A Whole lot of Stripers

Dan and Guests Tony, Ethan, Pat, Greg, Scott, Tom, Buzzy, Stephan, Charlie, Chick and Fred
Sunny and Hot, Water Temperature 85* and Clear

Tony and myself got out very early this morning to catch bait for our clients. We met them at their dock 
and six guys jumped on Tony's boat and six on mine and off we went looking for Stripers. We knew we had our work cut out for us today being a busy Saturday on the lake and wanted to put these guys on some nice Stripers. Well we earned our tips today, these guys 'Spanked' the Stripers and ended up with more than anyone could ask for. Tony and I worked together to insure both boats could keep their crews busy catching fish and after a hard days work our efforts were rewarded not only with a great stringer of Stripers but also a day of fun memories. Dan and his family will enjoy the fruits of Lake Anna tonight with some great table fare.

Some Happy Boys

James, Cayden and Ben
Sunny and Hot, Water Temperature 86* and Clear
Today was a fun day especially for me because there were three good boys who
enjoyed fishing as much as I do on the boat battling Stripers all morning long.
Cayden is holding his hand up because I asked them who caught the most 
Stripers today he was proud to say he did. Although fishing pressure 
was high as well as boat traffic heavy we found enough fish to 
cooperate to give us a great day on the water with our sons.

What a way to spend the morning!

Today DP and I both had clients so we got up early and filled our tanks up with bait then met everyone at daylight and went fishing. Our plan was for both of us to check out different areas and when one of us found a nice school we would call the other into it. I found what I wanted but just as I sat down to work it I saw another fisherman who had been watching us come to us on his big motor. I told my clients when this fisherman was 500 yards away that he would wait for us to stop then come right up to us. Well he did and started putting rods out so I just got back up and left him there. I headed down lake and before I got far DP called and said he found some fish so we went to him. When we got there he was set up fishing so I stopped a couple hundred yards away so I would not spook the school and put out our downlines. Before we knew it the bite was on. Everything we had out started going down and the same thing was going on in D's boat. Both boats worked the school for over an hour burning up about 300 baits and putting a lot of Stripers in the box. We both had to catch bait so we did then went our separate ways. DP only needed two more fish for a limit which only took a few more minutes then he came off the water. I went and hit a few different areas catching fish everywhere we went. We ended up using up all of our baits again then calling it quits for the day. Everyone had a ball today reeling in fish after fish. I have no idea exactly how many fish we caught but it was more than enough for everyone to handle. The guys thumbs were raw from handling Stripers and the girls tummies were red and sore from reeling in fish. Glad I am not cleaning all of those fish!

A slow Friday

Sunny and Pleasant, Water temperature 86* and clear.
Tony took his clients out today and worked hard to catch these fish. 
We had a cold front pass through last night which slowed 
fishing down today. I was out also and had similar results.
Tomorrow is another day, DP and Tony should 
have a great day if the wind does not blow out of the East.

Thursday Tony took his clients out for a great day of fishing.

Banging the Stripers

 School of fish we worked first thing this morning

Great Structure Scan Shot. My sonar screen on the left shows something on the bottom, looks kinda like bait with a few fish mixed in with it. Looking at my down scan on the bottom right you can clearly see exactly what it is. This is an oak tree that was placed out in front of one of my clients dock in Contrary creek.

Sunny and Hot, Water Temperature 86* and Clear
Today shortly after picking my clients up I found a huge school of Stripers. I really did not want to put my clients on so many fish until they learned exactly how to put the baits down but how could I resist? We set up on them and banged them for about 45 minuets before loosing the school. What a way to start the morning off! We fished several different areas before coming in this morning before it got too hot. Ben caught the pig of the day.

A fruitful day on Lake Anna

 Floyd Furr and Pastor Mike
 This is a pic of the first school of Stripers we hit early this morning.
 This shot was taken at 10 mph but I had been running 25mph when I located a school right over the channel. The school of Stripers at that speed show up as tiny dots bunched up very tight.
This is another shot of what it looks like to locate Stripers while running about 25mph. I was running that fast on the left of the screen. Notice as I can up onto the 25 foot flat fish were all over the break and up on the edge of the flat. As I slowed the boat the archers get larger but when I am running fast they are smaller and bunched up more due to the amount of water I was covering. I simply turned the boat around, put the trolling motor in, put baits down at 22 feet and we rocked them. This is where we cought our largest fish of the morning along with a bunch of other keepers.

Sunny and Hot, Water temperature climbing up to 85* and Clear.
Today was a day of instruction. Floyd had been out with me before and wanted to get dialed in on reading his Lowrance, locating bait and schools of fish and setting up on and catching Stripers. When I got in his boat I had to completely change his settings on his unit just to read it at speeds over 5 mph. I didn't take long for him to see what he had been missing. By the end of the trip Floyd was convinced that he could go out and put Stripers in the boat. Today he went from  0 to a Hero in a couple hours and put more fish in the boat than they have all year. Floyd is a great listener and will do just fine out there on his own. He will be back out on his own on Thursday to prove it.

Happy Fathers Day

Paul, Gary, Greg, and Tim
Sunny and Pleasant, Water temperature 83* and Clear
Tony caught bait this morning then went to the marina to pick up his clients. He was quite surprised when a Limo Van pulled up and out popped these four guys. He thought to himself, "My God, I wonder who I have going out with me today". As it turns out Tim's wife Carla hired the Limo and bought the trip as a Fathers Day present for her husband and his friends. Great thought if they were going to drink on the boat today. Today's fishing was not as good as it has been lately, probably due to the full moon and cold front that came through yesterday. They only caught 40 to 50 Stripers. Never the less they had a ball and what a great way to celebrate Fathers Day.

For those Dad's who did not get what they want today treat yourself to a 
charter fishing for Stripers on Lake Anna.     You won't regret it!

Tony had a charter this morning and show this group what its like to catch nice Stripers on Lake Anna.
Amy had to leave immediately when they got back to the marina so she is not in the picture.

A Busy Saturday Morning

Brian, Greg and John
Sunny and Pleasant, Water Temperature 82* and Clear
Today being Saturday I knew the lake would be busy. What I was not expecting was when I arrived at the marina there was already a dozen Striper fisherman that had launched and were out catching bait. I caught bait then picked up my clients at their dock around 5:15. We then went looking for Stripers. After doing a mock set up to show them how to deploy the baits and how to reel in the Stripers we were ready to go for the big ones. We wanted to set up on big schools but every time I would stop other fisherman would swarm in like Bees on us spooking fish so I finally decided to locate smaller schools away from the view of other fisherman and the move paid off. We would fish till we got busted then move again and again. By 10 were were done and were ready to come off the lake. I dropped everyone off at their dock, cleaned my boat up while they filleted fish. What a great morning on the lake, Cool weather and Hot fishing.

A Whole lot of Stripers

 Ryan, Marty, Andy and Mark

Tom, Kim, Bob and Tony

Cloudy and Warm, Water temperature 82* and clear
Tony and I both had trips this morning so we caught bait, picked our clients up and went looking schools of Stripers. Tony went one way and I went the other. I set up on some  Stripers and we banged a few nice one before they moved on. Tony saw some bait and topped his tank off so he could be ready when we found the larger schools. I found a second school and went through all of our bait. Tony came over and picked up where I left off while I went and filled up my two tanks with fresh bait. After catching bait we found one more school. By now my crew knew exactly what to do and we wore them out. Tony's crew was dialed in by now also and they did the same. It was 9:30, the sun was coming out, it was getting hot and the pleasure boaters were all over the lake,and we were coming off the water. There must be a race or a show for speed boats this weekend, they are everywhere. Today between both boats we probably caught 150 to 175 fish and our clients went home with some good memories and some wonderful diner.
