Sometimes your the windshield and sometimes your the bug. I was the bug on this day. These are giant stripers.. I hooked one for about a minute and had her pull off.
. Big stripes are tough to get on spoons. I knew this was going to be a tough sell but I always try for them when I see them on the sonar. They are very smart fish and very difficult to coax into biting at least on my homelake they are. I wish I had a image to show you the arches that I saw initially.
Here is a little play by play. You can see I got one hypnotized in image #1 but I couldn't seal the deal
. Just goes to show you just because there are fish nearby doesn't mean you can catch them. You can see in image 3 I had to change things up cadence wise. They didn't like what I was doing with them cadence wise so I changed it up. I stayed with these fish for about a half hour.
