So after another great burger at Wild Horse West, we hit the water as planned around 7pm. Not much boat traffic but seemed as though the wind picked up a bit just as we put in - just enough though to make our search for Striper boils/slurps difficult to impossible. Searched a few coves with no activity. Ran out of sunlight so decided to anchor up in Scorpion Bay Marina.
Spent the entire night within the breakwater of the marina - wind did pick up a little more so we just stayed put. Wind was out of the west so even within the breakwater there was a slight chop. Again, nothing real bad. It just would of made anchoring someplace else a bit of a chore.
Fishing was slow but steady, if that makes any sense. We put 11 Stripers in our blue cooler ranging from 2 lbs to maybe 3 1/2 lbs. Nothing big but half way decent size filets for my Iowegian friend to make a meal out of. All were caught, of course, on anchovies fished between 3 to 5 cranks off the bottom in 71' of water. Great night on da water even with a little wind.
Just before sunrise, we headed out once again to search out boils & slurps. The breeze again made it difficult to impossible to find them. So we called it a day before the lake got too busy. Off da water around 0630.
Da pics below show our very first catch of the evening (of course it was a double hookup!) & then the evening's other catch.....
