Well the stripers are bitting pretty good. I went up river this morning and caught 5, from 6-15lbs. Aslo afew channel cats. Saw 3 other stripers caught. Almost lost a rod this morning. As I was fighting one striper, I looked over and saw another rod going down. I tried setting the hook and missed the fish. I put the other rod back down and reeled in the first striper. As I got the striper on board I looked over at the other rod and saw it go down in a second and just about leave the boat. I grabbed the rod and brought in a 15lb striper. I saw 3 other stripers caught. they weren't running much water and at 0900 they shut off the water. So I left. Plenty of bait this morning. Water was at 59*. The next two weeks should be wide open for stripers.
