Shane Watson Guide Service Tuesday Report. Since my last report, our boats have caught stripers up to 20 pounds on freelined trout, white Sebile's, a small fluke on a fish head spin, and on a medium size little fishie. Look for the stripers on top and fish a freeline trout and cast to these rolling fish. You won't hook up on every cast as they are on small bait, but don't give up. Keep casting and keep moving to different schools. Some schools of fish will bite better than others, depending on the size of the school and where they are coming up. Try to find fish that are pushing bait up in a pocket or up on the bank for best success. The scattered single fish and the small groups that you will see out over open water are tough to catch. We have caught stripers from 5 to 20 pounds on our boats this week on our morning and afternoon trips. This report is brought to you by Shane Watson Guide Service and Hammond's Fishing Center. Good Fishing.
