Got on the water yesterday by 4:15pm fished one small area until 9:30pm with live&dead chubs live/dead bluegills. Chub chubs chubs!!! Anyway had a great day 2 stripers 19" 22" in 35' of water both on live chubs. Wasn't keeping count on catfish but did photo and measure 3 (32", 33", 36") the biggest took live bluegill. In total I'd say we boated 30-40 catfish. Dead chub heads caught min. Of 3 cats per use up to 5 on one piece of bait (new personal record). It really started to feel unfair once sun started setting chubs are jus to irresistible to call what I was doing fishing it was more like I went catching. Even pop was catching fish every few minutes there for awhile (once he finally started using my chubs. All in all great summer trip on the river and didn't spend a penny on bait(best part) I was really surprised how many cats were caught on live bluegill was kinda hoping to get into a flathead but no luck. Till next time.....

Took the youngins out on the boat on the river first time 5&6 went out they killed catfish youngest one had a 27" his brother had to help him lift tht rod once or twice. They do it all bait cast(drop on the boat) and hooksets!!! Let the older one steer us back got back to dock they wanted to try right at the dock and I turn my back for 5 seconds the older one is lifting a 6" striper outa the water on a Lil piece of clam! His first striper he was so proud but he was like "we got hurry and put him back your gone a catch him when he's bigger thts a baby striper jus like you catch right?" lol highlight of my day! The youngest out caught the oldest and caught the biggest one. In total they got 7 catfish 1 perch And at the dock they got 1 sunfish 1 striper baby!!! I told him he's in the club now lol great pics & vids won't need'em tho this one my bad memory won't forget! Oh big zero on the hook for me 😜 I still had better time then them if it's possible.

Ran into my local WCO today at Stuble Lake and he showed me a disturbing photo a poaching bust from last spring. There were 100 plus stripers poached from the shore at UPS. We need to help stop these guys! If you see poaching activity - please report them to the commission. Protect our resource.

I heard Taylors is now closed? Has anyone heard about this and if so, where can you buy bait around Essington?
