Q, it's nice to see that you can get those fish on! I still haven't caught one intentionally yet; they always take a nymph in a current seam when I'm fishing for something else. Perhaps I'll try the wooly bugger approach in my local pond.
Contrary to what's stated above, if you catch enough stripers you'll eventually come across one that comes out of the water. It's rare, but it happens. :eyecrazy:
Good job Q!
