Went back to my home state and had a chance to fish a couple of my favorite lakes, Kaw and Sooner. The 1st trip was to Kaw to fish the tailrace where I put on a fishing clinic as always. I caught Hybrids, Sand Bass, Catfish, Carp, Gar, Crappie, and Walleye. Don't know how many I caught in the 3 hours I fished but it was steady action the whole time with a fish on every 3-4 casts. I was using 3 inch curly tails and silver spoons. The only negative was aside from a few magnum Sand Bass and few large carp and gar, the fish weren't very big. I didn't have enough time to find the bigger fish but still a great day of fishing. The next trip was to what I consider my home lake, Sooner Lake. Netted some shad and was on the water by 6:00am. Our first stop and within a few seconds of sending the shad down to the bottom we had our first fish, a 7lb Striper. Then for the next 2 hours it was fish on with most fish between 2-3lbs. Then the Striper/Hybrid action died down and the Sand Bass and the White perch took over. We continued to catch White Perch with a few Sand Bass mixed in until our arms were too sore to continue. I even caught some Saugeye on some slabs. So my return to my home state produced two solid fishing trips so I was a happy fisherman. If anyone ever gets a chance to fish in Oklahoma remember the names Kaw Lake and Sooner Lake.
