    Finally got to get out and do some fishing...

    few good runs (and a swing and a miss :embarassed:)... Then landed a 7lb flathead and a 6lb Striper... I had another, pretty sure it was a striper as I heard it break the water before it spit the hook... Spiting a 7/0 kahle would not be an easy task imho, so I figured he deserved to get off :wink:

    Your first day was better than mine if you count the number of fish cought. But no matter what a day on the water is a good. Glad you had fun on your fishing trip and thanks for the pics.

    Nice stripes Tim, You fishing the Spillway at Sang? I heard from a buddy few days ago that the Striper were knocking the crap out of shad and gills while they were drifting the spillway, said they couldn't hardly keep them off the line for about 3 hours....... How long was that fish?

    I was fishing where the middle arm meets the east....
    Didn't get a measurement on it, other than weight.
    Was wanting to get back out there this weekend, but I don't think the weather is gonna let me
