The fishing I did in march: Me, and 7 other friends got a couple of guides together to do some striper fishing on Cumberland for the first time. WOW what a blast. No huge ones were caught but these fish were crazy fighters. All 8 of us caught at least 2 keepers 24" long, biggest were 28'', we had a few throw backs and a couple large mouth. Most were caught using plainer boards and live shad trolling off the back of the boat. My 2 keepers and 3 of the keepers on the other boat were caught casting a buck tail jig and swimming it back 2-3 ft under the surface... Man what a stike. I suggest if you ever get a chance to do some striper fishing, do it.

Ok this pic was from a different outting and has a little story behind it :Lake Reba, Sean and I had been catching some decent bass on jigs and rattle traps, He throws a rattle trap out and sets the hook, I could tell by the grunt he let out it was a good fish then he says "man this is a good fish". Well it never came up but it was running so we both thought it was a Cat, after a 5 min fight of this fish taking drag and trying to break his pole this is what came up with the rattle trap snapped in its dorsal fin
Best we can tell its a Koi that somebody must have released out of there fish pond. It was 27'' long and prob 12ish lbs
