friends came up from arlington and dave and i launched at about 8:30 sunday morning from lake side recreation area just south of willow springs campground. we just got around the point and boats were getting small strippers north of us. i stopped the boat and handed him a rod&reel and told him to get the kinks out as i had new line on and plastic 4" shad with a yellow tail on a leadhead jig and told him to cast out and if it twisted, to take the twist out. he did and after he got the twist off the bale he reeled in and just as it came off the bottom he had a strike. it stripped a lot of line as i hadnt told him the drag was loose. he tightened that and reeled in a 26" stripper. we got in on the tail end of small strippers chasing shad and caught and released a few. headed down to washita point and small strippers were tearing up the water. no big ones. we saw small strippers boiling the water all the way to loes highpoint where we got ice and came home just as the party boats were launching. great day on the water.

I Went out from the Dam to Eisenhower, baby stripers boiling in coves around daylight and 11am. I decided to catch bluegills for bait, and ending up making fish cakes out of most ( going to be a favorite ). I also learned even if a short trip is planned go with a full tank. Deep trolling with a A rig will maybe get the big ones. I also broke the tip off my 100.00 Omen rod ( their warranty sucks ), the carbons snap like a old breadstick, the cheap Shakespeare Ugly Stik are built like a tank and casts twice as far.
