After reading WylieCats report from Lake Wylie yesterday, I thawed out some striper and bass filets and headed out this morning to catch the big one. On the way to my fishing hole I came upon an old gentleman waving a white towel. He had water in his gas or something and the outboard would not run. So, I towed him quite a distance to the marina that he wanted to go to for service. Arrived at my fishing hole around 9:45 AM and had birds flying and diving everywhere and did not have any striper gear on board. Water surface temp bounced between 50.5 and 51.5 degrees and water was stained and there was very little wind. I anchor down in the middle of the main creek, adjacent to two small coves, one on each side. Baited up eight rigs with striper and bass and set them out. Baited up two cat rigs with gold trout and threw them out. All the action came from the trout rigs and I ended up with 3 small flatheads and several white perch I got jiggng. Plenty of pecks on the cut bait, but no connections. Since we had dropping pressure I was sure I would get the big one, now I will have to wait for another day. But, that's fishing.
