Skiatook has gotten WAY too crowded and, I think overfished,  so Striper Ed and I had to venture out and find someplace else.  We put in on bleep Saturday morning around 8. Headed over to where we thought the fish would be........and they WEREN'T there!!  There WERE several other boats looking for them though.  We decided to venture out on our own and after looking several other places, found some nice marks.  We stopped and dropped!   I threw a free swimmer (luv me some free swimmers) and almost immediately hooked up.  Then I caught one on a downline, then a free swimmer and then again on a free swimmer!  Poor Cap'n Ed wasn't even getting a pulldown!  I told him he should attach RW's lucky paracord keychain to his shorts, but he didn't believe!!  We sat in that one spot for most of the morning and into the afternoon.  It was a BEAUTIFUL day!!  While we weren't setting the world on fire.....they were kinda consistent.  We left around 3:30.  I ended up with 13 stripers, the biggest was 9.6 lbs.  Ed ended up with 1!  YIKES!!  All stripes were caught on small, live shad (didn't have any big ones) mainly on free swimmers in approx 12-22 fow.  

Sunday morning, we got up BRIGHT and EARLY and headed to bleep.  We were otw at 6:10.   Headed over to ONE of the honey holes.  DANG......there was already somebody there!!  So, we looked around, dropped a shad here and there, and were getting ready to blast off when all the sudden a HUGE school of morones show up!  This was the biggest school we've seen in a LONG time!  The school started in around 15 fow and went all the way down to about 32 fow out of 66, and was pretty solid from top to bottom!!  WOW!!  We dropped em down and it was ON FIRE!!!  We couldn't keep up with all the pulldowns we were getting!!!  MAN, it was fun!  THEN, some dude with his gf had to troll right through the middle of them.  Again and again and again.  After about the 4th round trip, he'd scared them all off.  We ended up catching 16 stripers in about 20 minutes.  Could have caught more....... if we'd have been twins.  At this point, our poor little shad  weren't slimy at all and we decided we needed to go catch some fresh ones.  We found some nice juicy shads and went back on the hunt.  Found ANOTHER nice school and spotlocked on them.   Started catching almost immediately.  Nothing much over 5 pounds.  Then, all the sudden, one of my poles slammed down into the water and everything broke off.  HOLY CRAP!!!!   WHAT was that???   A couples minutes later, another pole went down.  It felt like at least a 15 lb striper!!  Took me from one end of the boat to the other......one side of the boat to the other before we finally got color.  It was a BIG FAT PIG of a hybrid!!  9 and a half pounds.  FUN, FUN, FUN!!  After that, I caught a big nasty flathead (ya'll KNOW how much I hate those dang cf!)  Then Ed caught one, then we caught more stripers, then a sand bass or two.  We finally pulled em in and left around 3:00.  Ended up with 39 stripers and hybrids (and flatheads oh my!!)  Ha!  We only count the morones.  Fish were mainly caught on large live shad, on downlines.  Anywhere from 12 - 66 fow.  I hope ya'll are all having a GREAT fishing season!  See you otw!  Now....here's the pics!



      Pig of a hybrid!   See....it was literally "On Fire!!"

Nice happy faces and pretty colored pictures. The fish were nice ones too. Really enjoy the reports you guys make.

I like those colored backgrounds -- keep the sea lice lookin for their own fish !!!

Well as you know Robin my sense of humor runs a little offbeat but as soon as I saw those grey "columns"  I immediately thought of David Bowies "Serious Moonlight Tour..."

Very good report! The flames are a great idea! Keep those "beeping" reports coming

At the 17-sec mark there is what appears to be a shad on the surface then *Poof* it gone. Was there another fish with the hybrid?

WOW!  Good eye Tyler!  I went back and looked at it several times trying to see what that was!  It looked like maybe the hybrid hit the shad with his tail and drove it underwater, but it never surfaces.  You CAN just barely see something under the water but it looks much bigger then that shad.  I tried to see if the pole was pulled down but I couldn't tell.  It's a mystery!!
