Last Four Days in a Row

Postby TLT » Tue Nov 22, 2011 7:54 pm

I love Thanksgiving. Closed school for the whole week to take advantage of the fall. I have fished Saturday through today in the same spot; the Cut Channel between markers 53 and 56. Birds galore on Saturday and Sunday with fish rolling on top. Awesome haystack marks on the machine or striper lasagna as I call it. 400 Leviathan and ten weight is the ticket with the fly being a larger clouser tied with white arctic goat hair. Yak hair would be great too. Yesterday we found a flock of birds on silversides. The water is so clear that you could see hundreds of stripers slashing through the bait. Looked like albies doing that to a bait ball. Going to SC tomorrow, but it is going to blow for the next two days. I'll be back out there on Sunday! Lots of big fish up north and they are gonna come down this a way.

Great report Tom! Cannot wait for some of that to move south! The water really is clear this year...I have seen stuff on the bottom that I have never seen before. You can even see the reef balls that the Chesapeake bay Foundation put in the Lafayette River!!!

Capt Brady Bounds has been catching 40+ inch "ocean" stripers off Pt. Lookout at the mouth of the Potomac. 55' of water ... the cows are on the bottom... smaller males hanging higher 25-30 ft. (No birds) Chartreuse half-n-halfs, I-Balz eyes, QD-425 lines.

The fish have gotta be (assuming) in your area also, Tom.

Hope ya have good wx for future attempts.

Kendall, work that CBBT when ya can.
