Default Cordell Hull but no striper

My buddy picked me up Friday at 4:45 AM in Mt. Juliet we headed to Cordell Hollow Dam for some Striper. Generation was a lot less than the weeks before. We put in and the water temp was 54į. We rigged up 4 rods with gizzard shad (my buddy caught on Old Hickory) and started drifting with the current about 2.5 mph. I was casting topwater out of front of the boat. Unfortunately no takers or no swirls with me casting a pencil popper. I did throw in A-rig for a while too, no takers. We motored up to the damn after a while, caught some skipjack and the tied off a tree with 4 rods out for about an hour and a half but nothing. Other boaters that were there had the same result not even a bite. One guy said his buddy got a 50lb a few days ago other than that we hadnít heard any good reports. For what itís worth thereís a ďnot so goodĒ Striper update from Cordell Hull.

Itís been an awful spring on the Cumberland for the striper fishermen. Not sure what it is...the rain, the flows, not sure. Bait, which has been hard to come by recently, is now thick at the dam. Yet, Iím not even marking striper, much-less catching any. H20 temps have been fluctuating, but are at 57 now. Weíve tied up all over and pulled from the dam to Rome this weekend. Not sure what to make of it.

by the resounding responses, I guess the striper are all dead.....

Either the fish are way behind schedule or doing something totally difeferent than in years past, with the recent rain, releases and flows.

Went to Cordell Hull again yesterday, still no fish. We had skippies on 2 planer boards, 1 ballon rig and 1 free lining. Thatís right as some of you said itís been the worst spring in quite some time at CH. We pulled up beside three biologists in a boat and asked them what they were working on. They said in East Tennessee they had shocked a bunch of female stripers but not many males. They came to CH to shock some males. The bad news is they were shocking fish for two hours and only had one striper. So that pretty much tells us the striper are somewhere else. The biologist didnít really have any reasoning either.

Right now the voting is 99-1.
SAMBOLIE''s wife (God bless her heart) voted against it!
She's afraid they'll stop his mental disability SS payments.
