Monster Lake Sooner Striper!
Guide David Clark of Fish On! Guide Service sends us this amazing fishing report from Lake Sooner:
FISH ON!!! Well it started off kinda slow, but ended with a very big bang. After weathering a few thunderstorms and a couple of dry spells, we caught the biggest Striper I have ever seen caught out of Lake Sooner.
We caught it and had three more on at the same time. Two of the other three came off. The third one is still hooked and swimming around with a Ugly Stick attached to his behind. The fourth one was this 25lber. He sure did seem on the skinny side. It measured 42 inches long and had a 24 inch girth. I think for the length it should of been around 35lbs. It had a very big head.
We tried to release it but it would not swim off. We first thought he was hung up, but from good experience I know there is nothing there to hang up on (82.68 blue). Then he started taking some drag and the fight was on. It was on a down line so that made it even more fun.
It was the biggest fish my client had ever caught and we were all very proud of him. By the end of the day we had caught 35 Hybrids and a few more small Stripers. The water temperature was 86 degrees and we were in 35ft of water most of the day. Fish ON!!!!
