Photo Caption: Wayne Gustaveson finally caught a big striper from Lake Powell after 30 plus years of trying. His 15-pound fish took a deep Thunderstick lure trolled near Lone Rock in Wahweap Bay. This is the second big striper caught trolling Thundersticks in the past two weeks. Jesse Pond from Denver caught a 28.3 pound striper on Jan. 20th at the mouth of Forgotten Canyon.
The Reason: Nothing gets walleye better than a trolled Deep Thunderstick lure. A wacky-rigged Senko worm is a tried and true fishing tactic for smallmouth.
