This morning turned out to be a good fishing trip. Through the thunderstorms, the gallons of water pumped out of my bilge, a shimmer of light. This morning I arrived at the Cumberland City steam plant with cool breeze to gather some bait. After catching plenty of shad and some skipjack we noticed the stripers were running very good. Everyone was constantly pulling them out, even some nicer 25 lbs rock fish. I threw a line in and quickly pulled up a keeper. We headed out the to boat launch and headed up river to lock C. Arriving there we threw the rods in and the fun started. Within the first hour we had pulled out 4 nice fish per. A mix of flat heads and blues. Then the hard rain started and they went dead. We tried moving around and nada... After that I headed in and coolbreeze continued to fish. Any luck?
