Long day of traveling to fish but enjoyed a nice day on the water. Three hour drive to boat, troll for 5 hours, then 3 hour drive home. Trolled from #9 buoy to about a mile down river from #7 buoy and back up near the SM buoy and back to #9. Marked some nice returns about a mile down river from #7 and did some circles but nothing would bite. Talked to Full Page (PRAC & TF Member) who was fishing the PRAC tourney and told him where I was marking some fish and he was able to catch one from that area. Finally as I was trolling from the SM buoy across toward #9 I caught a 27 inch striper on a deep chartreuse umbrella. Heard on radio of a some catches of bigger fish up river from #9. Pics of my fish and Full Page (Paul's boat).
