Went out sunday and hooked a few. My friend got himself a nice 18lbr and I only landed a lil guy but I had another pretty big fish on but she shook my plug loose again. AARRGGHH!!! Its amazing how good they are at getting them hooks out...
It was blowin bout 30mph in boulder city and had us worried bout the river canyon but it wasnt to bad down there probly 10-20mph and the striper were eating early until the boats started rolling around noon.

Hey man that one was mine put it back lol.......no fish tacos for meeee...........great job guys. Like Allan said finding fish won't be a problem the rest of the year. But finding lots of boats and jet skis will ha ha. Go early go late. Bee sneekee _________________ ALL FISH BEWARE OF AC FISHERMAN!
Hey guys, you don't need to throw them all back. There is not enough fishermen down there to dent them. They multiply like jack rabbits. They have millions of babies for each, every year...Some years the spawn is better than other years but if you get too many stripers they will eat you out of house and home....eat everything else other than themselves...so, you need to thin them out....its OK to release them now and then if you please....
My brother was a fish and game warden and he talked to the biologist there and the man told him that they like to see a 20% take each year for a healthy striper population. Otherwise they are like forest trees where too many grow too close together and they never get big and choke all of them out....So when you keep stripers you are helping the others to grow big...and helping the fishery...
Now this is where they spawn successfully like the river and Lake Mead and Lake Powell...and most California lakes.... _________________

A few weeks ago I kicked back 4 small double digit fish. Then the next week I wanted a few fish for tacos the next day when family was coming over, and I got skunked. I'll be keeping everything I catch for the foreseeable future. We haven't caught anything yet that wasn't worth eating and with these big plugs I don't expect to. The quality of striper meat is one of the best out there fresh or salt water and is probably worth $10 a lb. I've been in Idaho for the past week or so trout fishing. Nice fish but you can't make a world class taco out of it. _________________ Here fishy fishy fishy!
