Sunny and pleasant, Water temp 74*
Caught bait fairly easy and laid out a spread of 8 planner boards and a bobber on the same flat we fished yesterday. Being Monday I was hoping there would not be as much boat traffic and the fish would cooperate a little better than yesterday and they did. We hit 3 flats that duplicated the same pattern and the Stripers wanted the big Gizz and hit them steadily all day. We had 19 hits, caught a couple of huge cats, clients kept 12 Stripers for 74 pounds, 4 of which went over 30 inches. Another testament to fish during the week .

Sunday, Sunny and warm, Water temp Mid 70's
Had client out last week in a major storm and did poorly and woke up this morning not looking forward too much to fishing on a busy warm Sunday with all the boat traffic. Took awhile to catch bait and everywhere we went there was boats. It is extremely hard to run my spread of 10 lines on days when every boat wants to run over top of you. Well we only had a few lines cut off by boaters and had to fish in less desireable areas of the lake. WE caught some very large cats and only 6 Stripers. I will be glad when it gets colder and runs these boaters off the lake.
