Angling Virginia

Shane Baker and Wayne Dorman

Sunny and Hot, Water Temperature 81* and Clear.
Today we were scheduled to shoot a show for television called Angling Virginia. I hit the water early to catch bait then picked everyone up at 5:45 and went in search of Stripers. I had invited VDGIF biologist John Odenkirk and one of my guides Brian Mohr to help me and Shane, the producer of the show, brought Wayne and Brian Oxidine to help film the show and reel in Stripers. Shane told me a couple days ago he needed about 30 minutes of recording for the show but after a morning of fishing he had well over 3 hours worth. He will have his work cut out for him editing down to 25 minutes for the show. We tried to get on film how I use my Lowrance to located bait and fish, how we catch Herring in the daylight hours, how I set up on fish and he also wanted to capture catching a few fish. I think he may have got more than he bargained for, we had quite a lot going on this morning and had a whole lot of fun. They got footage of chaos on the boat with too many fish hooked up. An especially good part was when Wayne  had a Striper pull the rod right out of his hands loosing the rod and reel then later we went back, found the Striper floating on the surface then netting it to retrieve my lost rod and reel. Shane also filmed quite a few Stripers coming in the boat. This should be a great show. The show is Angling Virginia, it airs June 7th till August 30th every Saturday morning at 8:30 on WRLH Fox 35 Richmond, which also is FIOS and Comcast channel 11. He also is posting it on websites. This particular show is airing on July 19th. Tune in to see what happens when you get a bunch of guys having fun Striper Fishing. I will keep everyone posted as the airing date of the show gets nearer. Shane is holding a stringer of a few of the Stripers we caught this morning.
