Tim, Bobby and Jeremy

July 23rd, 2009: Cloudy and Warm, Water Temperature 84* and Clear.
Started off catching 200 Herring early this morning and picking up my clients at 5:30. Set up on some singles on a bluff bank and pulled it for 20 minutes with only a half dozen hits so we got on the big motor and located a school on a 30 foot flat, baited up 11 rods and started taking hits. Lost that school after 30 minutes and moved to a different part of the lake and repeated the drill again. By now it was 8:40 and we had gone through 150 baits so I decided to go catch some more. Took about 10 minutes to find what I wanted, made a cast and filled the net up with 200 Herring [Too many, but I was glad to have fresh bait]. Put about 100 in the bait tank and found a school of Stripers. This time the guys were really prepared and they worked on the school pretty well. The school moved on, we found them again about 1500 yards away, set up on them and wore them out. Today we had 225 hits [probably half Cats], boated 33 Stripers, 5 Kittys and Tim caught this Bass. We came off the water at 10:30, time enough to beat the heat and the boat traffic. The guys kept 16 very nice Stripers.
