I threw out some jugs the previous afternoon around Sand and Rock Creek.  Ventured out Friday morning to pick them up.  Had several good eaters.  One went about 30# but she was released to go lay eggs.  Her belly was full!!

Kept two for the dinner table.  They both had eggs.

Then I decided that since it was 8 a.m. and warming pretty quickly that I'd go throw some sassys around the rocky areas.  

I pulled up, made a cast and landed a 26" striper.  Photographed it and let it back into the lake to make babies.

I made another cast and immediately had a fish one.  Hmmmmm.  Could I have stumbled into the mother lode!!  Apparently I did.  The boat was in 25 fow.  I would cast towards the rocks and let it fall and bump all the way back to the boat.

I stayed in one place for 2 hours and it was pretty much non-stop.  I prolly caught close to 50 stripers.

I kept a limit of good box fish and released all the overs and those under 15".  It was a great morning for sure.

I was using a 3/4 ounce sassy head in green chartreuse with a 4" sassy body with the tail dyed chartreuse.

At one point, they tore the body up and I quickly replaced it with a sassy body in which the tail was NOT dyed.  They wouldn't hit it.

I dyed the tail and threw it back in and immediately got hit.

Several times they tore the tail of the sassy off......so......if that tells you the color they are looking for.

I don't think the color of the head mattered that morning but they sure wanted a dyed tail.

I use Spike It chartreuse dye with the GameScent flavor.  Worked great that day!

All the boats were over on Table Top.  I was close to Rock Creek and Caney Creek all by myself.  Awesome.

I love it!  There is a reason they call them Rockfish too!

Really appreciate the lesson. Many people get offended with giving details. But some of us need the lessons. Thank you!
