Default Pickwick Report.

Man I am dead. The striper's were crazy this evening. They were not doing much. Then a storm came through.
Then it was hold on and smile big.. Best one was around 18 to 20 lbs. Broke on off that was way better then that.
Bait was 6+" Yellow tails.
At one time with both of us hooked up with a nice fish. We were getting wet, By the fish blowing up on the shad around the boat.
What a day. Now if I could only do it again tomorrow.
Pete

Sounds like it turned out for the best.
I have been in that same situation a few times myself. Slow bite, and a thunderboomer blows through and the fish freekin get silly, gotta love it!

Btw Pete, what exactly are yellowtails?

Yesterday was a Big 0 day. Not any bait and not a fish. Other then a few large mouth bass in a cast net. Had one that was lbs in the cast net.
Hope Thursday is a better day.
Yellow tails are in the shad family. There called THREADFIN SHAD in a lot of places.
Here is a link to one.

Thanks Pete, Sorry you had a nonproductive day. Last Wednesday several of us got blanked as well (goofy weather mixed with a shad spawn) As far as threadfins, all toooo familiar with them. I just keep forgetting you folks have a different name for a few things down there!

Best of luck to ya!

Looking forward to wearing the fish out Thursday Through Saturday.
Looking like it should be one of those trips that will work.
That is if the current will hold out like they are running now.
Pete

good luck, Pete...the salts and hybrids have been hitting pretty good at Wheeler and Wilson dams. They've been busting bait on top right before dark and a suspending jerkbait has been the ticket (live bait during the day). I'm going to Wheeler tonight after work and will shoot you a report.

Thanks for the report..
I hate to say this. But I will only get to fish with live bait, When I have some one to catch it. My back can't handle the cast net. Every time I catch bait. Its 2 or 3 weeks that I am down.
So I may have to learn how to use other baits for the salts..
But do love it. And have a few that have fished with me. Hooked on them.
Pete

Talking Re: Pickwick Report.

Yesterday evening, Was one of those evening you wish would happen each and every day.
We were wearing the striper's out on top water baits. The jump lasted for 2+ hours. And that was 2+ hours of great fun..
May just may hit them again this evening. Would say better then 30 fish 5+ lbs.
Pete
