Hi John And Shawn,
We had a windy, warm start at 2:30pm and the sun felt good on our backs. Despite the wind the Striper fishing was HOT today so we stayed mentally sharp for the next bite!
Shawn you are a fine fishermen and your Dad really worked hard all afternoon to become a better lure caster. You both did a fine job with me fishing several windy humps, ledges and shallow ditches. Plus, you guys worked the lures just right on those drop offs and the fish responded despite windy conditions. During that beautiful sunset, the evening bite really came to life and it was fish after fish. With 21 total fish and 5 Big ones over 8 lbs – it was a successful day.
John, casting a 1/2oz Blakemore Road Runner White jig with a 7″ white curly tail worm caught his new “PERSONAL BEST” Lake Texoma Striper of 10 lbs 4ozs!!!
Shawn, you really impressed me with your fishing skills at such a young age. Your new Personal Best came today as well with your 8 lb 12 oz BIG Silver beauty!
You caught that magnificent Striper on a 1/2oz salt water jig with a Zoom 5″ Swimmin Super Fluke in White Ice color with dipped chartreuse yellow tail. (Spike – IT lure Dye) Thanks for fishing hard all afternoon guys – you are fine fishermen indeed.
Here are some pictures I took of you today holding those 8 to 11lbers !! Congratulations on such BIG trophy fish. I hope you will come back fishing with Striper Express in late April / May for the Top Water bite and again in July for the “Slab Spoon” summer bite. Both fishing styles are really fun and a good learning experience for the serious Striper fishermen like you two!
