Hooked on Stripers

Carter and Patrick
Sunny and Hot, Water Temperature 86* and Clear
Today I caught bait before daylight then picked my clients up at High Point. I was surprised to see a long time client standing on the dock waiting to get into my boat. A friend of his had booked the trip and I was unaware that Jimmy Chen was going fishing today. He brought his son Carter with him and Patrick drug his dad Chris along to take fish off of his line. This was going to be great, two eager boys wanting to catch fish and two dads and myself to bait and take fish off the lines. We had a lot of action and a lot of fun using up the 200 baits that I caught this morning. We fished till we ran out of bait catching over 50 Stripers and a dozen Catfish. The boys are holding up a couple nice Stripers that they wrestled into the boat. Bet they can't wait to go again!

Another GREAT day with Jim Hemby. I've fished with him since my son was barely old enough to hold a rod. Carter is not a morning kid (what teen is?), but when I ask if he wants to fish with Hemby, his eyes light up and he's up at 4:30am without a fuss. We've fished with him during all four seasons. Jim Hemby is simply the best guide on Lake Anna. If you want Striper action, go with Jim.
