We went out early this morning to try and troll up a few stripers at the dam. We got one strong run but the stretch 25 popped out. We trolled til about 8:15 and they never pulled water, so I didn't catch any fish. Not wanting to give up, we took off to canal lakes for some herring. Came back and drifted all around the dam and short stay, tryin to find that deep bite. Nothing. Went over around Bonneau and drifted for about an hour an half, started in 28ft and made a long drift out to 38ft. Nothing. I just don't get the cool water cattin. I marked very few fish, but I hoped the thing was lieing since I saw plenty of bait. Water temp was 48. Canal was drty and movin quick. I saw a guy back at SS that was fishin near me around the dam, 7 nice cats and a 32" striper while reeling up. Glad somebody caught em. Guess I'll have to start looking for a day to set up a trip with Ron again, we'll see what he can teach me about these cool cats.
