July 4 - Stripers are at 100 feet

Typical summer with pop up showers in the heat of the day. It was a very busy holiday with high boat traffic. Things are much better now. Some people are really rough on things but I guess that is now the nature of the business. When I was young and my family stayed at a resort we would work very hard to leave things as they were when we got there. We would not relocate grills, picnic tables and rearrange furniture in the cabins. When we left the dishes were washed and trash was hauled and things were in good shape. We wanted the owners to not think we were pigs and would be glad to see us back. My father and mother taught us respect. Things they are a changin. Blackburns is fortunate that we have many repeat customers that are our friends and help with everything. It just takes a few people with no respect to go a long way. It makes Debbie and Susan want to cry when they see how some people leave things after they worked so hard to make them nice.
Bink reports stripers are 40-60 feet deep suspended over the old creek channel. They may be in 100 feet of water but are all over the lake . Creek channel is the key and spoon is the best bait. It can be fished at any depth in a matter of seconds and it looks and sounds like shad. He is catching a lot of big fish everyday.
