    Was fishing the Striper Fest Tournament on Smith Mountain lake this past Sat April 11th. We caught alot of fish had alot of action to, but not what we needed. With the slot limit no fish 26-36inchs. We couldnt find no fish below the slot much less larger then the slot. We tried for smaller fish, just wouldnt work for us. The past 2weeks, we've caught a pile of fish 20-26inchs casting artficals. Couldnt find them today! But anyways, we still had a blast, caught alot of striper 10-12lbs, and a bunch of largemouth casting for striper and smallmouth to.. and Oh yeah, check out this dude in the picture..!
