Game plan: Hero or zero.

Flies: Gigantic streamers - sex dungeons, ice picks, butt monkies (all flies were 4+ inches in length)

Results: 2 great days on the water. Caught some decent fish. Saw some gigantic stripers that did not want to have anything to do with me. Had fun.

Fat 17" bow with a mouth full of ice pick

The picture does not do just to exactly how coppery colored this fish actually was. 15"ish bow with a mouth full of sex dungeon.

I didnt have a chance to snap a picture but i also had a 7" sucker chase down an ice pick and hook itself. im not sure what that fish was thinking.

Lessons for next time:

1. dont trust google map directions on an iphone - print them out

2. strip set.

3. strip set.

4. strip set.

5. stop half-assing your double hauls.

6. put the stripping finger on the first day, not 3 hours from the end of day 2 float

7. bring advil.... my wrist is not used to doing that much stripping.

Strip set!

:=D:

I'll add to the lessons for next time:

8. Figure 8's at the boat really do work for trout...who knew?

And a word of warning for anyone going "Hero or Zero" in my boat....if you catch a fish smaller (or approximately the same size of the fly) you automatically get your picture taken....and probably video shot of it too. :D

Had a great time man!

yesterday we floated hammond to sunburst and we saw about 10 stripers in a group just above mckee bridge. Every one of them was 24"+

I would at least double that number....maybe triple. I have never seen so many stripers in one place in my life. We fished them hard both days and only got a look and a follow. Looks like night fishing them is about the only thing that will work unless you just happen to find one agressive fish in the school.

In all seriousness, there is one or two in the school that will go an easy 40"+.

I wish bait could be used in that hole......

if you need someone to night fish for you I am sure I could be talked into it.

everything in this post is purely opinion and is said to annoy you.
