Lowrance Picture

This picture was taken by guide Tony Smith yesterday morning. He took clients out and by the looks of the Lowrance he put his clients on the Stripers. Tony is also an avid hunter but he took off the first morning of hunting to take his clients out.
Here is a recent post from one of his clients:

Walker Field has left a new comment on your post "Walker and Mac":

Great day fishing with my teenage son! Many thanks to our guide Tony who did a superb job of keeping us on fish. Tony is a sharp man with ready conversation and an engaging spirit. Lake Anna is always pretty in the morning, but winter sunrise is arguably the most gorgeous morning event throughout the year. The Stripers did their part too; we caught two dozen and boated nearly a limit of quality keepers. Highly recommend an outing with Jim Hemby, and in particular Tony, especially as an opportunity for a dad to spend time with teenage children.

Thanks Tony, we'll be back in the Spring

A Great Day on the Water

 Catching bait in the morning

 Michael wondering if everyone showed up for work today

 David with a catfish
Boating a Striper

Sunny and beautiful, Water Temperatures upper 50's
Took out Jerry Logan, his two sons Michael and Ron and his grandson David for a pretty day on the water. Jerry's father started Logan Electric in Fredricksburg back in the 50's. Jerry ran the business and has relinquished the reins to Michael. Jerry is a good photographer and sent me a few of the photos he took on the trip. David and his dad Paul are here for a visit and returning to Turkey soon. If you click on the first picture and check my Simrad out you can see all the Stripers that kept chasing the bait away as we were trying to catch bait this morning. It was wonderful to spend the day with such a great family.

Yesterdays Simrad Shots

 In this pic we were pulling down lines at 20 feet deep. You can see the sinker [light fuzzy blue] and the bait [red with yellow outline] being pulled across the screen. The bait was simply being drug through the water column until it saw a fish on the bottom about two thirds of the way across the screen. The fish came up off the bottom to check the bait out so the bait rose up to get out of the way of the fish. This fish never engaged the bait. The bite was slow at this time and the fish were turned off.

 This picture shows bait and fish hugging the bottom. We were pulling baits at 24 feet and as we came out of a bait ball there were some fish which hit our bait and hooked up. [in the middle of the screen]. The vertical mark is us reeling the fish up to the boat.

 This is a shot just after daylight of a school of Gizz that was about 100 yards long.

This is another shot of Gizzards taken mid day.

Saturday Tony put his clients on some Stripers in a morning charter.
