Finally Got My Line Tugged Hard

Recommended Posts

I was on the water at 6:15. Water temp 82 to 84. Breeze very light.

Nothing looked at my topwater so around 7:15 I went looking.

I found small schools of bait fish suspended at 15 to 20 feet over 29 to 40 feet of water. I saw no bait fish on or near the bottom.

Eventually I found a point into a treed pocket cove with larger marks and some evidence of bait chasing. The fish were on the edge of the tree line.

I put a smoke pepper keitech on one of Bo's jig heads and experimented with different times of drop before reeling. The jig was knocked around more than once with no hook ups until I finally got a good hook up. I had forgotten what stripers and hybrids felt like.

That fish was the only one of good size. The boga grip scale said a hair over 4 pounds. I caught three more little ones and a crappie of no real size. I came in about 10:30.

BTW, Crosstimbers marina has no fish cleaning station. I need to figure out how to deal with that.

I've been hankering to find a guide to take me fishing on skiatook lake to tell me what it's like to be a retired lawyer. I am still in the practising phase

There’s a guy named Randy that fishes that lake. But unless you’re one of those personal injury types, with a billboard, and a bunch of 7’s in your phone number...I doubt you could afford him.
