First Trip on Norman

Last week despite living so close to Norman I gave my first try at catching stripers.

We hit the water around 2pm and fumbled around for an hour or so (six pack in drinking time).
Around 4:15 we motored to a new spot, marked fish everywhere. Moved closer to the shore, still marking fish but in more shallow water. 18-25’ or so.

Bam, rod started going crazy. Landed a nice 5-6lb fish. Caught one more and then right before dusk the fish started breaking surface like hell. If I’d had my flyrod I would have been able to hook up.

We threw our miners, rigged with 1oz lead and just slowly reeled it through the may-lay. Hooked up with two more fish.

Not a bad day at all.

Going back this week.
