Early in the morning of April 27, I got a text from my good friend and fellow fishing guide, Mike Moore of Valley Guide Service, who said he’d just landed a really big striper on the Sacramento River.
He wasn’t kidding! Here’s the pic of Sky Borie with a 50-plus pounder that measured 51 inches and had a 28 1/2-inch girth! The massive hen slurped down one of Moore’s magic minnows and put up a spectacular fight. After a quick photo session, the fish was released to go complete her mission.
Needless to say, Sky’s now entered into the Hawg of the Month Contest and has a chance to win some cool Pautzke’s headgear at the end of May. If he advances, Sky will complete against the other monthly winners for a chance to win a free fishing trip with Bill “Swanny” Swann of Swanny’s Fishing. If you’ve got something that’s Hawg-worthy, send us and email and we’ll let you know where to send the pic.
