I got brave this AM, gave the better 3/4's her Valentine card and my favorite type of chocolate and told her that I was going striper fishing. Excellent conditions for striper fishing. Overcast with lite sprinkles and wind. Almost felt guilty about doing it, but that passed as soon as I started the outboard. Went back to Beaver Dam Creek and there must have been 12 boats fishing the area. Marked plenty of bait at the opening and along the left side going in. Net results was five pull backs on the planer boards which I did not connect with and I boated four bass and one small blue. Got back home soaking wet and the boss wanted to know what I did with her favorite scissors. Time for me to go to plan B for this special day. I used them the other day to cut some cotton material for my bait tank.
