Hooked up with StriperFreak for a nice day of fishing this morning. We both were on the water at 6:20 this morning and the action started quick. I hooked up with two 16 inch smallies with a buzzbait and StriperFreak racked up two with his shallow diving crankbait. The competition was on!!! We caught several nice smallies around 12" and some slightly bigger. Once we were tied 4/4, Striperfreak put the senko on and killed me catching around 8 or so in some rapids. He went on to catch more as we went down the river with the senko and then my buzzbait started rippin' lips. I ended up with 15 and StriperFreak ended up with 25, so it was a great day on the local flow. StriperFreak is a great guy and a great fisherman. I had a blast today!! My thumb is tore up, so that's always a good sign. Hey Striperfreak, if you get a chance, post those pictures in the forum!! I caught all mine on buzzbait, Striperfreak was using shallow crank and caught most of his on senko in rapids. At one point it was every other cast for Striperfreak. I"ll post pictures as soon as possible. My flash is broken on my camera so hopefully you can see the pictures. Water is getting cooler and fish seem to be striking more, water level was not bad where we were fishing, slightly stained. Pictures will follow.
