Default April 29th striper pics

Little rainy, overcast, falling barometer, pre-front conditions. I went out with Little Casino last week for some lessons and boy they paid off!

Anyway I boated 3 fish. A 26lber, a 15lber, and one that I think would have gone about 12lbs but I released it before I could take a pic or weight it 'cause I was right in the middle of the kill zone and expected to get hit on another line at any moment. I also lost a MOHAWG ! I had a double on , and was playin the MOHAWG and tryin to reel in the other fish leaving that pole in the holder. Just more hawg then I could handle. Got them both close to the boat about the same time, when MOHAWG ran under the boat and fouled the 15lb test I had on that rod and broke off. I estimate that fish at somewhere over 20lbs. I caught the other fish, it was the 15lber. Anyway I released all but the 15lber unharmed and in great shape because she was gut hooked. I think if I would have had a partner today we could have really cleaned up, as it was very difficult to control the boat and the lines all at the same time. But I had a great time anyway. I have some pics to post but they aren't very good as it is always difficult to take pics of yourself holding a fish that is heavy and release it quickly. I felt like a one legged man in a butt kickin contest out there for a little while!

Here is a pic of the 15lber

Here is an attempt by me to get a picture of the 26lber.

Man, you Hoosiers sure know how to bring the fresh water stripers up!
I may have to schedule a day with Little Casino myself, I want just ONE of those bad boys on my line, let alone a double!
Nice Fish!

These pics are not the day of my Little Casino trip these are from the trip after. On the day of the Little Casino trip we had really bad weathr conditions but we still got two a 15 and a 18lber. But Willie taught me so much that day I wanted to get out right away and apply the lessons learned on my own. They worked as you can see in the pics. Willie is a great guide and teacher, well worth the trip and fee if you can swing it.
