I took Skye out today for a little fishing trip at a Pond not far from my house.
I promised her I would, since I left her home to chase some Stripers on the Ct River with my Buddy Mike yesterday.
Fishing was very tough, water is high and Muddy On the Ct River.
I did manage to land a nice fat Striper, I cast my 3/8 oz. jig rigged with a Berkeley Hollow belly in blue herring up next to a lay down close to shore and BAM…………………. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Pole bending and my tip is bouncing as this bad girl made her run down river, then I was reeling like a mad woman as she turned and swam back up river..
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ ………….I finally gain some ground and get her boat side.
Mike got the lip grippers, and she’s in the boat.
My first Keeper of the season, 29 1/2” and 14#, fat and healthy.
She swam away strong to fight another day.
Next Week, I’m taking the W500 out for my first Striper trip, My buddy Mike will be out in his Bass boat
keeping and eye on me, I can’t wait.
The pond gave up no big fish today, but that doesn’t matter, it was nice just being out on the water in my W500, fishing with my dog.
Tight Lines and MoPaddle Safe All.
