Lenny, Paul, Cliff and Emil

Cloudy, Sunny, Rain, Sunny, Windy and Rain, Water Temperature 54*.
I caught bait early this morning and picked the guys up at the State Park where they were camping at 6:30. I was very concerned with the weather they were calling for today, I postponed these guys from yesterday to today in hopes of better weather but it was tough today. We set up pulling boards over shallow flats where fish should be but all we could do was get short strikes. I must have pulled a couple miles before we could get the fish to bite, even then we continued to get short hits. The weather was crazy, there must have been 3 fronts pass through today. The wind started out of the south, then the west and ended up blowing out of the north. To make things worse the water temp dropped 5* since Sunday. I continued to try different patterns till I figured out how we could put fish in the boat. Right when we were dialed in a Bass boater ran right over a flat on a point that I was heading for, he went out of his way to screw the fishing up. We pulled through there anyway with no luck, then hit another flat adjacent to it and hooked up several times. Although the fishing was tough today we hung in there and ended up with a good catch. I am taking the same crew out tomorrow, now they know the 'deal' we should have a better day.
