Smoked The Stripers Today

Recommended Posts

   I got out of school and picked up my brother from middle school shortly after, we then made the 1hr15min drive to lake anna because we found some fish this weekend that we didn't exactly capitalize on. Had the kayaks in the water before 6pm and we were on them from the get-go. I found a school of hybrids with my a-rig, and went to work on them for at least an hour. They are all 14-18" since they were recently stocked but they are very fun! 

  Once the sun got low the fish dispersed from my spot and we had to start searching. There were a few sporadic fish on the surface to point us in the right direction but they wouldn't stay up for long. I threw the a-rig and my brother threw an x-rap. We were able to zero in on schools and go through little flurries for quite some time. In the last half hour of light, fish pushed bait into the shallows and we caught some nicer ones on spooks. I even caught one on the bull shad! I ended up boating 14 hybrids and 12 stripers, my little brother got 2 hybrids and 7 stripers (he whooped my tail last trip with 15 stripers compared to my 3 so I was due to sting him a little) Today was my last day at school so I'll be up at 3:45 to pick up my friend and head right back out there for the sunrise bite!

That would be so much fun.  I was trolling for stripers and caught nothing.
