Jan 3rd. Hit the lake late 9AM, as my fishing partner wasn't crazy about getting to lake while 30 degrees....

Stayed in 25 FOW

She caught first of 2022, followed by several before we decided to go have some breakfast...

Tried Jan 4th, on the water again late...had a little guy with us. Started 930AM and off 1130AM,

Wind was blowing hard, 15+.....if each can catch one before the 20+ wind we'll call it a day...

Each of us did and we literally blew out of the lake....1130AM

Your fish catching will double if you ditch the Raiders Cap. HaHa good looking fish and crew. 20+ is dangerous in a small boat. You made the right call by skidillating.

Sorry, I am not an expert. Is that a hybrid striper?


Be safe,

Yes, Hybrid Striped Bass.
In the TPWD stocking history table, they are called Palmetto Bass and Sunshine Bass
The Palmetto Bass is a female striped bass crossed with a male white bass.
The Sunshine Bass is the reverse cross.

Very nice! Are you using a jigging spoon, live bait or something else??
My wife isn't all tat into flailing a rod at fish all day, but she enjoys what I call "beer drinking fishing"


I didn't lose him at the boat. I shook him off cause I didn't want my hands to get "fishy"

Is there a good source for striper size minnows or are you cast netting them yourself?
