Default Striper trip

Well my oldest kids birthday always falls on Memorial Day weekend and is also usually the last day of school or close so we always take him out early and head out of town for a big weekend to kick off summer and celebrate his typical straight Aís. Due to my lay off in March and school being cancelled we didnít do anything extravagant but instead booked a guided fishing trip on lake Whitney for stripers. Heís always wanted to catch a big striper and we even went up to north Arkansas last year and got skunked. Well today his wish came true and both my boys caught some very nice ones! We limited out in 2 hours then caught and released a few more. I canít say enough good things about guaranteed guide service and their guides. Gonna have to do this again soon!

When I read the title I thought bachelor party, may be pictures ? But glad I opened it any way, those are some nice fish and those kids will remember that their entire lives. Very cool, I can’t wait till I can fish with my grand son.

Happy Birthday to your young fisherman son, and great job on fish catching, and on making straight A grades too. That middle pic of both sons with big fish and smiles is just awesome. Good for you dad to take those boys on a fishing trip they will always remember.
