  1. Anyone catching any stripers yet? I'm sure water hasn't been running much. Just wondering what's been going on.
  2. We both love making trips to the White River. Always a good time no matter what. Such a awesome fishery.
  3. After the rain had pushed through and the lightning had quit, me and my son got out on the water about 10:30. We put in at Wildcat Resort. What appeared to be 1-2 units running for the day, we jetted up to just below Gaston's. With 1/16 oz jigs and 2lb line on are rods, we started are drift. We fished back and fourth down to wildcat shoals for the day. With the wind blowing anywhere from 10-15 mph, we managed to put 50 fish in the boat under tough conditions. It was a quiet and nice time on the water with hardly any traffic. Great time spent with the youngster on the water.
  4. Striper are biting good as of two weeks ago. I took my dad and son out on a trip and guided them around. We found shad down towards the mouth of the river. We fished with 2 generators flowing. I wouldn't even bother fishing with no generation, unless you fish early morning with a kayak. Can't really get around much in a boat unless you fish from Gore landing and down. Also the bite is really tough. The stripers love it when the generators are on. I've noticed a few guys doing well on big articulated streamers. Shad or rainbow colored. I run a Shawnee trout boat with a short shaft Evinrude. Put in at Gore landing. I'm able to run all over the river no problem with two generators, but with one I gotta take it easy in a few areas. Good luck.
  5. Finally got back to the White River for some much needed trout fishing. We fished half a day Thursday and all day Friday and Saturday. For being the holiday weekend, the water wasn't crowded at all. Water generation for Thursday and Friday was low generation early (2 units) and higher generation in the afternoon(5 units). Saturday they only generated two units for the day. We fished marabou jigs with 2lb line. Black/olive and tri olive were the colors. I did pick up my fly rod on a few drifts each day to change it up a bit. Managing to catch some trout on size 12-16 Hares ear nymphs with a indicator. All three days the fishing was really good. Lots of fish being caught. Especially early and late afternoon. We fished all over the river. From the state park, down to Rainbow Drive Resort. The fishing was best for us from The Sportsmans, down to Wildcat shoals. Lost a couple of really good fish this trip, but that's how it goes. Ended up being a great trip with the family and a couple of friends. 16 3/4 inch cutty, plus a couple of bonus fish.21&22 inch wallys
  6. Thanks for the info. Gonna get out there soon.
  7. Anybody been out lately chasing stripers? Just wondering what the bite and water situation is like. Thanks
  8. That was the first thing my brother said. They were really colored up brightly.
  9. Made the 7 hour round trip to the White River on Friday. Pulled up to the boat ramp at White Hole about 8:30. Six units rolling with didymo blowing all through the river and gusty winds. Not great conditions. Made the trip straight up to the damn to get ahead of the trash. When we arrived, they shut off three units, leaving on three. We fished 1/16 and 3/32 oz jigs all day, fishing from the damn to Gaston's most of the day. Wind was bad further down u went. Some parts of the river were white capping. Fishing was tough for us jig fisherman, but we managed to catch fish. No big numbers, think we caught around 50 ish between the two of us. One of the tougher days of fishing, but still a good day to enjoy the great outdoors. Here's a few pics, with a bonus fish.
  10. Something like this? I was just playing around one night and tied this up.
  11. I couldn't smile cause I, "put a good dip in."
  12. Just to add. I made the trip with Jamie Friday to the White, but fished with my brother out of my boat. Below the catch and release area to Gaston's we got on the white jig bite. My first hook up was a 19 inch brown. Didn't see any shad, but white was the color in that area. The fishing is really good on the White right now.
  13. I broke out the cutting torch and some welding rods and this is what I came up with. Very pleased.
  14. Ham, I've been thinking about mounting one on my Shawnee for some time. I haven't heard anything about them and would like to know something before spending the money. I did find this.Found a few other brands as well. Lot cheaper since its manual. Around $170 for both the mount and the fiberglass pole. I'm kinda leaning towards this idea.

    Jerk baits

    When I'm chunking jerkbaits for browns, I like something in the 4-5 inch range. Black and white is always a good color. As well as black and gold. I've done well on rainbow trout Rapalas. White with purple bellys and black with red bellys have been my best choices for brown trout. With the flood gates open right now, I'd be chunking something mostly white. Might be some shad coming through the gates. I'm mainly a jig fisherman myself, but I still like to throw a big ole jerkbait here and there. Good luck.
