I decided to take a scouting trip to check the conditions and water temperature on North River. The water temperature is still cold sitting at 45 degrees in the morning, but warming to the low 50's in the afternoon. A warm wind from the south helped with the afternoon rise. My fishing buddy today is a much better fisherman than me...I took a picture of him sitting waiting for me to catch the first one.
The morning started out with one striper after another. They loved the crankbait slow reeled bumping the stumps.
The bass finally woke up and started giving the stripers a run for their money. I caught five or six in this size during the morning. Sorry for the washed out photo's. As I stated, I was alone in the boat, and my fishing buddy for the day did not know how to work the camera.
Finally around lunch the big girls started to warm up. Caught this nice one on a lizard.
