Michael, Alec, Sam and Spencer

Sunny and hot, Water Temperature 89* and clear.
Michael and myself got out early to catch bait then picked the guys up at the marina and went looking for schools of Stripers. It being the weekend we were only going to fish for a couple hours and we came off the water around 8:30. Today's crew consisted of my grandson Michael, friend Tony and his son Alec, 2 of Tony's best friends children [Their dad recently passed away], Pa Pa Bobby and Hunter. I looked for about 5 minutes and found a school, we tried to put out 10 baits but before we knew it every rod was bent over. I was baiting all the lines and net the fish, the kids were reeling in the fish and everyone else tried to get the baits in the water. After about 15 minutes of pure action Bobby tapped out and said this was way too much action for him. The kids were steady reeling in fish and LOVING IT! We worked that school for a half an hour and then took a break. We gave the kids a drink and I went and found another school. We duplicated the first drill time after time until the kids ran out of energy and I ran out of bait. Spencer is holding a Carp he caught on a Herring while Sam and Alec are wishing they had caught that big yellow fish. Everyone had a ball today, the kids did exceptionally well, at times you could have heard them screaming a mile away.
