Lisa, Alan, Zack, Jim, Brad and Dan
Sunny and Hot, Water temperature 92* and clear
About a month ago I got a call from Lisa wanting to surprise Dan with a special birthday present. She had been seeing my business cards and flyers around the house and Dan had been studying them. She called me and set up a surprise trip and today was the day. They met me at 3:30 ready to go catch bait. We put 240 in the tanks and went looking for some fish. I set up in an area just for them to get experience putting the baits in then we went looking for fish. I found what I wanted and we set up on them. Fish started attacking our baits and for an hour we spanked them. I lost them a couple of times but found them quickly and hit them again. Lisa got hot and started hooking up fish after fish. I think she had a can of Woop Ass hidden in her corner and unleashed it on the Stripers today. By 9:30 we had easily caught our limits of 28 Stripers and got off the water early enough to beat the heat and enjoy the rest of the day. Out of the 34 Stripers we caught this morning 31 of them were keeper fish. Quite the present for the birthday boy!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAN

Sam, Josh, Sam and Michael
Sunny and Hot, Water Temperature 91* and Clear
This morning I got out and put 250 baits in my tanks then picked my crew up at High Point at 5:30. We set out 10 downlines, planner boards and a free line and for the first hour had continuous action. We hit four or five areas today and caught fish at all but one area. Although Sam caught most of the fish everyone had a great time. Even Josh with his left handed excuse managed to pop a half dozen Stripers. It got hot out on the water this morning but that is how the Stripers want it this year. If you like to fish come on and get you some!

Duck Seay and Pearson
Don fished yesterday and caught this nice Stringer
Sunny and Hot, Water temperature 88* and clear
Duck had only a couple hours to fish this morning because he had to get back to feed the horses, cows, goats, chickens, dogs and cats so I was under the gun to get it done as quick as possible. I knew I was challenged because Duck has a habit of holding his thumb over the line while reeling in fish which about 80 percent of the time causes the fish to get off the hook. I told Pearson he was going to responsible for filling up the cooler and he rose to the occasion catching most of the fish this morning. The fish were scattered but I managed to locate a couple of pods of Stripers that gave us plenty of action. After I cut Ducks thumb off he did catch a couple of keeper Stripers. Its hard to teach an old Dog new tricks. Its probably going to be hard to hold the filet knife without a thumb!
