My friend, Frank, from Overton, said they caught two tilapia this week along with 10 stripers. Frank said they had caught tilapia the week before, but did not recognize the fish and just released them.
Some fisherman turned south out of Echo Bay and really got into the stripers last Tuesday.
I went north out of Echo, with my wife Julie. It was her maiden voyage on Lake Mead. We got a late start, arriving about noon, near marker 19.
The only other boat on the north end Tuesday, was Rodney and Allen, who wound up with 15 stripers. Rodney said it was the first time that he could remember, where they were the only boat on the north end of the lake.
We showed up and trolled along with them but only caught one. When we arrived back at the dock in Echo, around 3:30 pm, Stan and Pat were just pulling away from the dock. They had caught 24 stripers and one catfish.
I ran into Carol and Lloyd on Friday at a garage sale. They said they were on the lake Thursday and came in without a fish. Carol said this was the first time they came in without a fish. Well that just proves there is more to fishing than catching fish.
Kent had a nice day at Stewart’s point, fishing from the bank, but the Stripers were on the small size.
With the full moon, Larry and Jason are going to fish at night this week.
Rex and his grandson will be fishing with Dr. Sebago, Tuesday this week. Rex is from Mesquite.
Thanks for the photo Pat. That’s a nice catch trolling south, out of Echo.
Sunday night, thanks to Daylight Savings Time, I witnessed a sun set and a moon rise about 10 minutes apart while having dinner with my nephew Mike and Judy in Moapa.
