Dave Clark (Fishon Guide Service) and myself got a invite from a good friend Butch Cross to go chase some hybrids (wipers) on Sooner Lake. Now when 2 guides get a invite to go fishing we are all over it. We met Butch at 7 am and we where off to Keystone to get bait. We arrived at Sooner about 9 am and we where off. Our first stop on the warm water side didnt yield much . A couple of blues and a couple of hybrids. We made a move to the cold side and found fish in 28 to 30 ft. of water. We stayed there the entire day. The fishing started out a little slow but seemed to pick up as the day went on . We did have a couple of doubles and I do remember one time we were all hooked up. We didnt keep count of how many we caught but some where around 40 to50 would not be to far off. Here is a action shot of Butch putting one in the boat. It was a super day to be on the water.

Had the pleasure of taking the Jenks family out again. Just like last time it was a catching trip. Our first 2 stops didnt yield a single fish. On the 3rd stop, we started putting fish in the boat right away. Ruth ( who is in her 80s ) laid into a dandy striper. This fish would probably push 5 to 6 lbs. She sure put a show on for those younger ones. We caught around 20 fish at this stop and it finally died out. After a quik bathroom run we were headed back out to look for some more willing biters. Guess what ? We found them at the last minute. We baited lines up and down they went. They barely had time to set them in the rod holders when they started to bend over. I got real busy for about 45 minutes with netting fish and baiting hooks. I must say that Miss Ruth probably did catch the most fish that day. The bite slowed up for us but not before we put another 20 fish on ice. The total count for the day was 40 hybrids ( wipers ), 1 real nice striper and about a 4 lb. channel cat. Thanks ladies for a great day.

The best catch of the day was when Rob had a fish yank the rod completely out of the rod holder and we caught the rod about an hour later. That bite finally died out after about 2 hours so we made a move to the other side of the lake. We found some very willing hybrids( wipers ) and it was game on again.
