10.0" / 1.0 lb. Striped Bass (striper) caught by Jeff Larimer fishing on Saturday April 19, 2008 at 07:30 in Lake Pleasant near Morristown in Maricopa County, Arizona (AZ), United States North America

We went back to Lake Pleasant today and had our minds on striper. Ive heard alot about where to look for them on this lake and we were heading to the north end of the lake. We were still out in very open water when we noticed the birds, many birds on the water. I cut the outboard and put out the Minnkota to quiet things down a bit and get a better idea of what was happening here. To our amazement, when the birds vacated the area, a short time later one fish broke the surface, then another,and yet another! Our drift took us directly into a large boil! I was already hooked up with a rainbow trout KASTMASTER (my favorite lure), and my buddy was rigging his pole as quickly as he could! By the time it ended I had landed 20 or 25 fish (catch and release),and my partner did equally as well. Nothing very large, but it sure made all that time spent on the water worth it now. I love it when you end up in the right place at just the right time! Stay warm in the east. Its breaking 90 degrees out here regularly!
