I'M SO EXCITED! I've been dying to catch a striper. I went to the Clinch, again at the Bull Run steam plant , about 8 p.m. and the fish were jumping everywhere. I couldn't rig fast enough! First I threw out a 12 - 14 hook with a shad but with as active as the fish were and not touching it, I went to change my rig and the shad fell off. A fish couldn't jump fast enough to eat that shad. I changed my rig to a Rapala, light silver, about an inch, and OMG, the Stripers went NUTS The guy fishing next to me was catching them just as fast as was my eleven yr old.! As fast as I threw it out, they jump for it and I was reeling them in left and right. So, from about 8 - 9, these fish were feeding vigorously.
I will post pics but was so excited to just post! :D

Congratulations, glad you caught some fish and had a good time it sounds like to me. I hope you have many more trips like this one.
