Kirk and Keith Mainland, David and David Grant

August 30, 2006, Partly cloudy and hot, Water temp 85*
Picked up clients early and went out to catch bait. Found some fish breaking around daylight and worked them for awhile but they were punks. Set up on a flat nearby and ran boards and bobbers. Made 6 passes on the flat and caught fish every pass. Ran out of bait and had to catch more then set up on a 20' flat I fished the day before. The wind was blowing and did not catch fish right away but kept working until we located the fish. And Boy did we ever. Everyone caught plenty of fish and the Boys expecially had a ball. Naturally the boys caught the largest with Keith catching a 32 inch Striper. Clients ended up keeping 14 beautiful Stripers for 73 pounds.

August 29, 2006 Sunny and Hot, Water Temp 85* and Clear

Picks clients up at High Point at 6 and caught bait. Started out running boards on a 10 foot flat with only 2 hits. Moved out to a 20 foot flat and ran planner boards and downlines and started catching Stripers. Checked out a couple of more 20' flats until I hit the right one. I knew we had found some nice fish when the Stripers started hitting the Yellow Bird Planner Boards, not the bait I was running. We had 1 fish hit the board 4 times before it finally took the bait. We had 15 hits today and clients kept 8 fish. The fish seemed healthy for this time of year. I have been off the water for awhile rigging my new boat and this was a great way to break it in.
