A large striper tournament was held on Norman yesterday and some did not fare too well and some tore it up. Also, due to weather conditions, a lot of fellows had problems with their boat, bait tanks, etc. The hot spot was Work Creek in the Davidson Creek area. One boat caught 20 some striper's from 7 until 11 AM, but these were not tournament size fish. The winning fish (6.1 pounds) came from the Camp Dogwood area and his kicker fish (5+pounds) from Mtn. Creek. Right after the fellow that won caught his kicker fish is when my youngster caught a nice striper. I had a guide trip and could not join the fellows and a 14 year old lad on my boat caught a 6.4 pound striper, an event he will never forget. I informed him that if he had of been in the tournament he would have won some money. Man that got him excited, but not as much as bringing that nice fish in. He did a great job with a little supervision from you know who. Additional fairly hot spots was from Marker 13 to 15, Stumpy Creek, Mtn. Creek and Skippers Creek. The area that my client caught the nice fish was within sight of where WylieCat caught a 5.96 pound striper in January 08 to place him and myself in the money. The poundage to place this year was less than last year.
