All in a days work



Josh Rafoth of Augusta, a member of the Clarks Hill Striper Club, started fishing at sunup on a recent Wednesday and didn't get the first nibble until 3:30 p.m., when he hoisted this 36«-pound striper from deep water near the South Carolina side of the dam. He was trolling live herring with planer boards and balloons - a favorite tactic for winter stripers. Josh was fishing with Ben Payne.
