Jack and Alli

Party Cloudy and Pleasant, Water Temperature 66* and Clear.
Picked the guys up at 6am then went and caught bait. Set up over 30 feet of water with a spread of planner boards and downlines. Hadn't got but a few baits out when a downline rod bent over and Jack jumped on the rod. Good Start to the day. I continued to put my spread out and worked areas from 6 feet to 35 feet deep, taking hits on everything. There was breeze today so I concentrated on areas that were primarily out of the wind which made boat control easier. We had spells where the Stripers were aggressive and then lulls in the action for 30 to 40 minutes or so. Today we had about 20 solid hookups with Alli keeping 10 fish to take home. Most hits today came on boards because of the cloud cover. When the sun got bright the Stripers would pull out to the edges of the flats and when the clouds would cover the sun they tended to move up onto the flats to feed. If you are in areas of the lake where you get pictures like the one on my Lowrance and put the right baits in the faces of the fish there is a good chance you can put a few nice fish in the boat.
