Still pretty much the same. Trolled 4 hours or so for no striper love. Went to troll the east end for a look-see and hit a LMB on the u-rig. 4 1/2 lb. Nothing else.

Been very ugly at Skinner for a while now.......... im thinking most striper have packed up and moved out of the lake for some reason ( lack of shad???). used to be my favorite lake but for last few seasons ive been scared to go there unless i want to target Lmb.

Keep up the Good work, nice bass

theres plenty of shad in the lake you just got to locate them and the fish and you will hook up dont stick to one color you got to change it up.

Man, in the last 3 weeks I've run white, chartreuse, trout pattern, chrome (spoons), anchovie, pearl.... and nada. Monday the main bouy line was down and I metered the big water up to the dam. Nothing. Obviously they are there somewhere but they are being difficult.

Bitesomething. Up until the second week of Jan. they were easy to find and catch. Maybe not a full limit every time, but you could always find fish.

I was out on Tuesday and Wednesday. I didn't meter anything fish either. When you metered to the Dam how deep was it. I didn't go there. But I did see the buoy line down.

I didn't meter right to the dam but saw around 80' or so.
