Well Lake Powell did not disappoint, I am going to post a few nice pics, and believe me when the action was hot, fewer pics were taken. Some fish were bigger and some smaller, but again when hot fishing hits, pics are the last thing to do. I feel if I say the amount of fish we caught daily it would seem silly, and not even real, but if you have fished this lake the numbers make sense. I caught over 100 bass easy, stripers in certain holes produced 100-150 in the 3-4 hrs., walleye lucky to find them deep in the coves on sand bars far and in between-maybe 2 a day.
The obvious key to yanking the stripers were anchovies, we would go through 3 bags a day easy. The recon lure of choice that caught all of the fish was a rapala natural shad rap-DEADLY!!! once we found stripers it was non stop, at times we would just hit coves and find rock rubble falling into the water and boom bass attack time.
We had sore arms, cut fingers and hands, ate and slept great. I would suggest to slip your boat at lake Powell because the boat ramp is 6000 miles long each way-wshhhhh once a day was enough.
ON a very serious note- take a topo map of this lake, a gps as a backup, and hopefully your vessels sonar has an updated map/gps function-MARINE RADIO TO CH-16 EVEN BETTER!!!! We took a 30 mile one way trip to last chance bay-which was fantastic... but scary, because we never saw another boat, 3 boats in the main channel-so if your out of gas or break down with no radio, prepare for a long dark night in the swimming pool.
P.S. when you leave a cove 30 miles away after fishing all day, every single direction looks absolutely the samescary feeling if we had no GPS. tightlines and enjoy some goofy pics.
