Finally persuaded the wife to take a pic so I could post this. Caught this on live shad just outside of Neely Slough. Been catching some crappie of docks there and noticed a large amount of fish under this dock so I spot locked on it. The spot lock actually backed me up into a slip. This fish got on almost immediately. I had my drag set very loose due to the fact I've been catching lots of small stripers. If the drag is set loose it's almost like fishing with a bobber, as the smaller fish get a chance to get the shad all the way in their mouth so can hook them. This guy did not need that, as his mouth would have looked good on a big largemouth bass. I thought he would spool the reel until I tightened the drag down. I had a second fish on one of the other poles that got off while I fought this guy. He was about 30 inches long.

PK has been tough fishing this year. I've caught lots of stripers but few keepers. There's lots of little ones and bait so the future looks good.

That's nice, congrats. My son and I caught 180-200 stripers in that lake this year, and possibly 20 keepers out of them. I also see a good future in it.

Why do I go fishing? To catch a box of fish and/or some quality time under the sun. Thank Heaven I never fail fishing in Texas, catching box fish or plenty of sunburn.

Better ration than I am seeing TCK73. I'm getting about one keeper a week and some days I bet I catch 75 stripers. Unreal how many small fish are in that lake right now. Amazing what happens to PK when we get enough rain for a striper spawn.

I am, but this pic is at my house in Allen. Wife's been having some asthma due to the high ragweed and didn't go out with me.

No Joe, Got too many crappie for that. If the wife would have been with me to take a pic I would have released this big boy. She says she likes striper better and refers to crappie as "fried mashed potatoes", but I like crappie better. Striper are definitely more fun to catch, but I still prefer crappie. Been getting a few PK crappie. That's why I was fishing that dock. Those big crappie will go to town on live shad.

It sure was Ax. The few stripers I get at PK have to do me since Texoma's stripers left for the river. Can't wait until all the little ones grow up.

Been a tough year for stripers on my part Mtdew. I lost Texoma then the flood gates opened at PK and they all went to the river. I see that people are catching a bunch of 20 inch stripers in Granbury now. I figure they came from PK, as we were chock full of them until the flood.

The future looks good for PK. There are lots of small stripers and huge amounts of bait. Big'uns are just hard to come by now.
