Angler Report: Lake Mead overnight striper party
Send your fishing reports and pictures to BFishing@AZGFD.gov
Don M.: Thought I would send you a photo of the fish that we caught on Saturday night out of South Cove on Lake Mead. It was a truly historic night as we were able to put 340 fish into the boat and on ice.
We had 319 stripers, 20 channel cats, and one gizzard shad. We got all of those in a seven-hour trip, from 10 Saturday night to 5 a.m. Sunday morning. It did take us five and a half hours to process those fish.
We used 8 pounds of anchovies that were cut up and two boxes of nightcrawlers along with some shrimp and cut up squid.
These anglers were from Camp Verde, Ariz.
Note: On the Colorado River from Separation Canyon to Hoover Dam (including Lake Mead), the daily bag limits are: unlimited for striped bass under 20 inches in length; 20 striped bass 20 inches in length or larger; 5 trout; and 15 crappie. Also, check out our special regulations map.
