      I love the action from the Stripers! Get 'em on a crank (my go to bait)?
    2. Now I will have to target the walleye. I think I will have to fish before sunrise to have a better chance.
    3. Thanks for the inspiration to go after a Striper. Landed my first one today
    4. Maybe a little slow but you get real good fish!
    5. Hey that’s not bad at all! Nice Rick!

      It says something about the kind of spring you are having when this is drying up. Those are some nice fish!
