    Small Craft Advisory Fishing For Stripers

    Since it was a small craft advisory today I decided to take my small craft out fishing. I threw my minnow pot over at my dock and in 15 minutes I had over a hundred minnows--that will not happed too much more with winter on the way.
    I have had a Port-A- Boat for about thirteen years now and today was the first time I put a trolling motor on it. My friend Randy moved from the water out to the hills in Buena Vista Va. a couple of years ago and gave me a trolling motor that he said he has had for many years. It still works great. I trolled around the shore line dragging live minnows fifty feet behind me and caught 6 small Stripers. Nothing real big but fun in shallow water and 3 foot waves.
    This evening I also caught one of the bald eagles having dinner right as the sun was going down. He was ripping the feathers out of some kind of bird and as you can see in the last picture he puffed up his feathers as if to tell me to leave him alone. Here are some pictures from today.

    Dont you just love fishing in a small craft and catching. Sometimes it's best to leave the big water craft at home.

    Thanks for the replies. Here are a couple more of the eagle, I think it was some sort of duck. So far the boat has held up pretty good.

    How does the minnow pot work? Does it work like a crab trap..like put bait in it and they can swim in but cant swim out?

    Hey Brian, I'm not far from Buena Vista and your right it is beautiful country. Too bad we can't have the best of both worlds (mountains & ocean).

    Buena Vista? Home of Southern Virginia University... I know a few people going to school there.

    Nice portaboat. I know one other person on this board who owns one of those.

    My friend moved from on the water in Hampton Va. out to the hills. He likes it but still comes back this way often to visit. Here is his web-site. http://www.shortchiropractic.com/tes.html
