I had the pleasure of fishing with Brandon yesterday. He is an experienced fisherman and took to it right away. The day started off steady with a few crappie and lead to a hybrid striper excursion after we decided to chase some larger fish. Immediately we found a large school of fish on one of my favorite mid lake spots and caught several limits of 5-8 lb fish on 5-6″ gizzard shad we netted near the shoreline. We weren’t keeping fish so all were returned to the water to catch again.
