Well well well..

What a marathon 2 dayer.... Lookin back it was tough and epic at the same time.

It all started last week when TB wanted to tandem boat San Antonio on a two dayer. Theory was solid, one of us run north lake one South Lake..

Comb the waters if you will of the prized blood lined Striper meat!

Next thing you know, TB lets our secret out to MikesOcean, who tells Hiro.... I say screw it and tell DK who tells Andrew, I invite Double A.

Heck we invited even TroutOnly and Hardcor... But they declined, stating they had some more "light line", "down rigger", "rapala" "silverwood 8 inchers" movies to make and just weren't geared up for anything bigger than 8lb test..

So be it!

Now the trip was blown up into a 4 boat Trolling Carpet bombing!..

All of us to hit seperate runs of the lake and report mid morning.

Well I noticed the weather was turning to pot Monday morning.. Too late, were commited. We launch at the Bako Boy ramp, well not all of us, {no matter how hard we try we cannot prove that the North ramp route is the safest, fastest and easiest route} oh well I digress,,,

3 of us launch from the bako ramp and one from the Bob's south shore. DK had engine troubles immediately and almost went home.. He stuck it out and has some throttle/fuel pressure problem that would only let him idle.. He made the trip fine.

We troll and troll and troll,, NUTIN! And just as predicted the wind blows hard at 11 am.. Still we all trolled..

Only major Striper activity was in deep water, deepest in fact of the lake and fish were posted up at 80ft.

we got the downriggers out and ran through, nothing. We tried and tried... We tried bait, we tried vertical jigging, we tried Hardcor's light line and yozuri bean method.. Nuthing....

Here are a few pics to show the waves and wind and partners..

Leaving the Bako boy ramp I immediately saw MikesOcean BLING BLING polish job on the "tin cup".. Look at the shine from 2 miles away{way in the distance}

Look at all the CRAP we loaded for the 2 dayer.. Most went unused.. I tend to pack too much on these trips

Wasn't long and sunset was approaching. We hunkered down and got into a daisy chain formation which allows us to fish from both sides of everyones boat.. Here is some pics of the grub getting cooked and the partay starting..

DK and Andrew started off hot with the "JACK LINKS" super mackeral.. **** looked like salmon

Wasn't long and the soco changed the course of discussion and behavior... We also noticed the big guy was aweful quiet.... dude got a hamburger and hot link in him and a fifth of Beam and was out like a light.. We threw leftovers in his general direction all night while he slept...

We contemplated life,, Talked about Britney spears loaded up on crank and how much fun that ride would be.... We all were in consensus that it would certainly top the experience of a DD striper on Topwater..

Carp BLEW up all night on boils all over that lake, I was trying to come up with some setup to get on that bite.. Came up with a Alabama rig style bait... Think it will work BOB?

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u290/kluna2/IMG_20130416_211620_227_zpsae99d16e.jpg (http://s171.photobucket.com/user/kluna2/media/IMG_20130416_211620_227_zpsae99d16e.jpg.html)

Double A got the biggest kitty around 7 lbs and just near lost his rod. We both lunged as it was going over and we both grabbed it... Kitties were biting so good we eventually had to reel our baits in to sleep..

WFN open on the kitties...

Dawn broke and it was COLD! 32 degrees and a solid 10 mph wind all night had all of our butts froze... We un daisy chained and headed once again for different parts of the lake looking for stripers...

Ofcourse I picked wrong again and went North. DK and TB went south...

Well lets just say Double A and I met DK at the ramp before lunch and were heading home while SOMEONE captured some trout eaters!.. I'll let him tell the story and pics...

Double A... was a blast, best partner there is. Thanks for putting up with the striper skunk and nice kitty..

MikesOcean.... glad to see ya again and thanks for the food.. Your like a boat skipper superhero in that bling bling..

Dk.... get those gremlins outta that boat and get a millerton pig for us..

Andrew.... Great to see ya and talk smack again!!!

TB... Im proud to be 50% of the Bako boys.. You came up on these FNN Striper killin wannabes who troll light line and are afraid to travel to real lakes..

HardCor... were your ears ringin last night? Somewhere along the smack talk... your video came up.. We all wondered who could make TroutOnly look tall??? Then TB said you were Hank Hill's father.. And yes,,, "I'm CUTBAIT" was said a lot that night

Not feasible to take the Oildale women this trip. Hence the cranked out Britney Spears discussion.

Oh yeah. Water temp was 63. Lake is low. Water was clear of weeds and is clear in visibility.

He was in the zone and nothing was gonna stop him.

Always good to be with the boys! A bummer DK had boat problems. And also a bummer I never got to see him and Andrew!

CB and DA looked like they were having fun out there! And CB sporting his new rig! Looooking good out there bro.

http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b516/mikesocean/4FBE9C58-BEB8-43EC-AE37-10029BC72508-1238-000000AB82F80F9E_zpsfc155593.jpg (http://s1289.photobucket.com/user/mikesocean/media/4FBE9C58-BEB8-43EC-AE37-10029BC72508-1238-000000AB82F80F9E_zpsfc155593.jpg.html)

Had some tequilla on the water with them. Before I went to sleep he asked if I wanted to fish Catfish with them. My eyes were burning so bad that I knew I had to sleep and catfish was the last thing on my mind. haha

Trolled HARD all day yesterday and changed setups to see what they were after. Metered TONS of Fish 20-30 ft and no takers from any of us. Wind started blowing hard. Me living the farthest from the lake I had to pull an Over night trip leaving Monday night to fish Tuesday. By day end yesterday I couldn't keep my eyes open. So I was gonna get some shut eye at the truck. CB calls me and said he and Double A were gonna head home and said DK was Gone. WTF?? everyone left I thought. TB was gonna tie up to buoy on the lake with the wind blowing. I figured hell, I might as well leave. After all, best part of trips like this is parting at night with the boys. And Didn't wanna another repeat the following morning trolling. All I needed was coffee cuz I couldn't keep drinking tequilla all night. But I never got the kettle from TB. he brought. So I left at 7pm and cant believe I made it home alive. Pulled over at 9pm to sleep on the side of the rode. Woke up at 1;30 am and headed home!!

I am very happy TB got those pigs, he deserved them!!!!

He asked me this morning why I left. Its so the Fish Gods would bless him this morning for all his hard work!!! Maaaaaan he's an Animal!!!! Good Job Brotha!!! Proud you nailed them. Wish I was there with you my brotha!!!

Now watch, Bob will be out there real soon to get his limit! Get them BAAAAABBBY! I know I will be back sooner then later.

04-17-2013, 06:16 PM
Mike sorry we missed u. We worked the north end of the lake all the way intell 5pm. We got the boat running better then ran south to meet up for the night but heard you left. Also heard you were playing bumper cars with a bouy. Lol. Next time mike we will get them.

04-17-2013, 06:37 PM

Pretty funny watching CB drive while AA tried to grab the bouy to tie up to. So I just drove right up on it alone and grabbed it for them. haha funny chit!

Ya we will have to make another trip out there or Miller! I still can't believe he got em this morning. Well...I do. He was in the zone!!! If there was a huge tidal wave in the lake, I still don't think TB would have got off that lake! I should have called you before I headed out. CB said he thought you left. I shouldn't have assumed! Next time bro!!

04-17-2013, 06:48 PM
Here's the 4 San Anton kitties I kept.


04-17-2013, 08:55 PM

04-18-2013, 01:56 PM
Sportsmanship, Bob tells me he was talking to TrailBlazer on the water at San Antonio !

I don't know what they talked about but in my day that's called good sportsmanship ! Nice Bob ! That's old school, Thank's for doing that !

I too made a call why'll the boys were on the water at San Antonio ! cutbait told me the bait and the Stripers were deep and won't respond to anything !

I made a suggestion on going to really dark colors and some flashers on the u-rigs !

Just wondering if you tried this or did you giggle and say Hank Hills dad just called ?

PS I didn't know what it meant to be Hank Hills father so I Googled it ! It said Hank Hills father is and old mean Shi t that had his legs blown off and still kick;s the Shi t out of everybody !

Thank You cutbait, I love you too !
