With the bass spawn going on and gorgeous weather my friend and I decided to head to Lake Arthur for a Bass/Striper combo evening.  We started by fishing for largemouth and man did we get them.  if just 3 hours we boated 20 bass and lost about 15 more because the fish were on beds and just not trying to eat the baits, but they wants them off the bed.  At around 8:00pm I decided to go try my favorite striper spot.  Each of us were able to hook up with 1 striper and they were both around the 20 inch mark.  We were also lucky enough to have a couple walleye strike our jerkbaits.  I can’t wait to fry those guys up!  Usually, I am a catch and release guy, but occassionally I like to keep walleye or crappie to have a little fish fry.
