A Day For Firsts

Recommended Posts

So today was the second trip of the year that we have launched the boat. At the VA Dead Sea known as Lake Anna. It was a chilly 36 degrees when we launched this morning with 5-7 mph winds. We fished for about three hours and then moved to a flat where the wind was pushing the bait up against the sea wall. We fish for a few minutes with blade baits getting snagged a couple times on various things from trees to massive rocks. The next cast resulted in a solid thump after letting the bait flutter back to the bottom. The result was a nice three pounder on the dot which was the first lake bass of the year (ponds don't count for me this time of year). The next first was after making another run all the way down lake to the d**n. We were fishing a ledge which went from 6 FOW to 50+ in a foot and a half. After getting snagged on various things from big trolling A-rigs to old fishing line, we decided to idle over to the rip rap and look for some bait to try and get another fish in the boat. We didn't see much bait so we decided to fish anyway and as we work our way down the rip rap in the ultra clear water my friend Everythingthatswims on this site says they're is a bass following my jerkbait. He pauses and the fish turns off and returns to wherever it was. At that moment I drop my blade bait over the side and thump I hook up. 30 seconds later my first striper comes over the side at a whopping 21 inches just big enough to keep haha. All in all it was a really good day and enjoyed being on the water with friends

Stripers are a blast. I wouldn't fish for bass nearly as often if we had them around here.

Nice! I'd like to catch a striper sometime. Not really a pond fish :(

To tell you the truth that largemouth pulled harder than that striper when I first hooked up we thought it was a striper the way it pulled drag
