Fishing solo before sunrise on the Ohio River using Creek Chub Stiper Strike 1900 lures to get some distance to my casts, I was fortunate to catch two "In-fisherman award" size monster hybrid stiped bass. Water & weather conditions this year left me very few mornings like this. I was very blessed to get a couple opportunities.
