Since my last report we’ve had all of our boats out on guide trips everyday. We’ve caught stripers up to 35 pounds on downlined bluebacks fished 25 to 40 feet deep over a 35 to 70 foot bottom just off points and humps. Some of our boats are still catching a few fish early on a freeline, on a Spro Dawg, a Super Spook, and on a Redfin and then switching over to a downline. On my boat we have started out downlining at daylight and the numbers and size have been good every morning. Leadcore is also producing out on the main lake both north and south. Capt. Mack’s 4 arm u-rigs are also catching fish. Many things are working on the stripers. I think the biggest thing is being on active fish, without boats being right on top of you.
