Kelly perhaps you should have your wife hold the camera once in awhile, I am begining to think you have a lot to learn from her, she is on the fish always. :)

So you've been relegated to the position of guide & skipper now? Great fish and good for her!

I plan to be out in the Lagoon tomorrow at first light looking. Would like to catch a couple trout or maybe a snook or red.

Ahh, Lake Murray!
Lotsa big stripers to be had.
I've been told they were landlocked way back when the dam was built.

Bob I should tell everyone that I know nothing about freshwater fishing...but I have been reading a lot about Lake Murray and Striper fishing... DNR does stock Striper's in the lake... but they are reproducing on there own..that is per.. SC DNR website... the pure breed Striper's have clean lines.. if you look at the picture you can see that the lines in that fish are broken... so that means there has been some inter-lake breeding... the report has some pictures and the more the lines are broken... the more generation's of lake breeding...

They are fun to catch..and will try again Monday the 14th..thanks for checking out the thread.. if you get down this way would like to meet you... if nothing else we could go for a boat ride.. and tell me what you think about my little boat..

I'll give you a shout some week-end and maybe we can go boating. I know less about fishing than just about anything but I like to eat them!

This past Sunday, it was cold, and overcast.. we still wanted some time on the water... and boy did it pay off... we fished for about 3hrs, then the cold got us... but put a couple of nice Stripers, in the boat
