Fishing Report 12/10/10

Bill Struthers & I did a little stickbait casting yesterday evening and caught these two striped bass on 5" suspending stickbaits. The larger one went 40 LBS and the smaller one 35 LBS. The weather was great all day and I hope we have a few more days like that before winter really sets in. Crappie & bass are still being caught in shallow water, these striper's were caught just about dark and a little after. I also had one on at about 3 PM that threw the lure that looked to be about a 30 LB'er. Both were caught in about 15 FOW casting parallel to the bank. Water temp was 55 degrees. Gold Clown color was working while the sun was still up and purple tiger after sunset.

That looks like a sure way for me to lose a Megabass, McStik, or LC Pointer. IF I knew I was throwing at those beasts, I would put a jerkbait on a wide spool reel. I normally throw jerkbaits on a small spool baitcaster with fluro.

Taxi, you missed the part where I said I throw the Megabass on small capacity baitcasters with fluro. If I'm buying fluro and Megabass to begin with, I figure catching more fish is worth some money.

I really don't think I'm going to be able to turn a 30 plus pound striper with 100 yards of line. I'm come crazy close to being spooled by a TR spoonbill. That was enough excitement for me.

10-4 on not throwing $25 lures at those stripers. The two in the picture were both caught on $4 BPS lures on 12# P-Line CX. If you let a striper get a hundred yards of line out you probably won't land it. You have it get as close as possible by chasing it with the boat once you hook one and try to stay right on top of it with all the pressure you can put on your equipment. It also helps to change out the treble hooks that come on the lures with 3X strong hooks. When stripers are actively feeding they are eating a lot of fish so a cheap lure works as well as a pricey one.
