Re: Bluegrass newbie
Dark Skies-It was caught off shore so to speak. We were camping on the lake for a week and using one of the boats that was tied up to put our rods in the boat's holders. We were using live bait. We just stumbled onto a "pattern" where for about 4 days in a row from 3 pm to 5 pm, or so, the stripers would "stack up" off this small point that juted out before a straight stretch that was part of a "chili bowl" shape. We had seen all sorts of guide boats come by us, and head down the stretch and around the bowl pulling planar boards. It was pretty funny because the 5 or 6 of us would just sit in our chairs with beverages during "Striper Hour" as we called it and take turns grabbing which one or two of the 4 poles that would double over. If nothing happened after 10 minutes, someone would go re-bait the hooks and lob them out again. Needless to say, we were heartbroken come Thursday and the pattern shut down completely. But for those four days, we ate like Kings. Striper Nuggets, fried taters and onions and frosty pops! Lord I miss it.............
Thanks for the memory,
