Iíve been hearing rumors about folks catching a few nice hybrids lately. Since I havenít had any luck with that for a while Iíve been boycotting BP and chasing stripers at Pk and Texoma. My neighbors and I decided to give it a go this morning for a while till the play boats came out. I had to run by runaway bay so my backseater could get his license. We were later than I wanted and couldnít find any shad. I did catch half a dozen perch and did not have high hopes for them working very well. After looking at a couple of places I noticed a few boats not far so I went to check it out. A local guide buddy was there so I gave him plenty of room and anchored a couple hundred feet away and dropped those perch down and immediately got hit. Drag stripping locomotive was on the other end. Well it would have stripped more but some dummy forgot to check the drag after my last trip. That loco actually broke the hook off at the end of the shank by the bend. After landing several we had to go chase down some more perch. It might have been easier to use a hook and bobber than throwing the net. Finally found 9 more perch and decided that would do us. We finished with 1 shy of a 2 man limit. Altogether a good morning on BP. I guess Iíll have to visit more often.
