    Man it was a nice day on the lake, temp. in the low 40's, overcast with lite fog. We must have put a hurting on the stripers yesterday because the pickings was slim. Spent 2.5 hours in Little Creek and got three stripers, two bottom feeding green fish and had a big cat to pulled loose. One of my bud's and CCC member was out there with one of his friends and the skunk was all over his boat. But, I bet it will not be that way all morning.

    Ricky, where can you find bloodworms around LKN? I don't know about the striper's being under the Hwy. 150 bridge, but it is possible.

    I've caught small stripers in Marshall Steam Station on bloodworms, but these were barely keepers. Someone told me they feed them these in the hatchery and that's why they'll eat 'em up especially the small ones. most of ours were from 12-18". lots of fish but they were all dinks.
