Mike Vann with Nick and Ryan

October 29th, 2007 : Sunny and Cold, Water Temperature 65* and Stained.
Caught bait early and picked clients up at their dock at 7am. Set out planner boards and a bobber rigged with big Gizzards right in front of their dock. Hit a hump right across from their dock and Mike hooked up with the first Striper of the morning. Just as soon as he put his fish in the cooler another fish rolled a Gizz and then hit the next board that was in line. Ryan grabbed the rod [although still half asleep and hung over] and attempted to fight the fish. He acted like he hooked a freight train by the way he was fighting the fish and complaining how hard it was to turn the reel. He battled the fish to the boat and we relieved him by netting the fish. We continued to pull boards getting strikes on most points and humps which was surprising to me due to the fact that yesterday the coldest weather blew in from the north dropping the water temp 5 degrees and waking up to 30* air temperature with blue skies today. We ran out of bait and caught more then went downlake and hit another area . Before I got set up a Striper hit my bobber while I was still letting it out and the next flat we hit produced two Stripers with Nick catching one on a board and Ryan nailing one also. We had 17 strikes today, not bad for the conditions.
