Shane Watson Guide Service, End of the Week Report (08-10-08). Last Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday the striper fishing was very good. Saturday was slower. Today, Sunday was very good. What a difference a day makes. Yesterday's strong east wind and scattered fish were replaced with a calm lake and strong fishing this morning. The downline bite and the leadcore bite, both were very good at mid-lake and further south, over and just off of the main channel. All of our bigger fish were caught out over the channel and this continued most of the morning. We caught some smaller fish at the end of our trip over a 70-75 foot bottom down 60 feet, but most of our fish were caught out over the main channel. Our fish this morning ranged in size from 5-18 pounds. Overall, it was great to be out there this morning. The fishing and the weather was perfect. This report is brought to you by Shane Watson Guide Service and Hammond's Fishing Center. We appreciate everyone's business and hope everyone enjoyed the blueback lottery on Saturday.
