Well, just wrapped up a week on the lake and getting ready to head home tomorrow. Thought I'd share with you all our report. We had a very successful week boating lot's and lot's of stripers. Most trips to powell, I will spend a day and run up lake to GHB or down lake to the rincon etc. This week I only left bull frog bay once and then didn't go any further than moki. Why? Because we were to busy catching fish! 1st, I asked some info on umbrella rigs on a different thread and we gave them a shot. We fished a captain mack's. I had a couple that had 5 lures so we cut the hooks off from 2 of them and successfully had a 3 hook legal rig. We trolled them with other cranks (mostly a thunderstick) and the umbrellas would get hit probably 5 or 6 times to every 1 of the cranks. We primarily fished the back of the bay from dome rock on back. We would troll until we found a school or until we hooked up. Many times after hooking up we'd drop spoons on them once they followed to the boat. We repeated this on and off all week. Still tons of shad back there, as we passed ball after ball on the graph. A couple of the days we filled our coolers by noon and got off the lake and took the kids on a hike. Overall we came home with between 40 - 70 stripers each day! That's a lot of filleting, and vacuum sealing! Almost all fish were very healthy and fat. I think we only had 2 skinny ones on the first day that we dispatched. Oh, and with the water receding so quickly it really started to expose the mussels in the area. Didn't take them long to make an impact in the north lake.
