Tony, Chip and Sleepy

Sunny, Cold and Windy, Water Temperature 55* and Clear.
Picked the guys up at 5:30 and went looking for bait. Made 4 or 5 throws and caught a tankful. Set out a spread of about 25 baits pulling shallow flats at first light then moved out over 25 foot flats as the sun got brighter. We popped a couple fish on the bobber and a board but realized the fish were not shallow so we gradually worked deeper for fish. The wind got up and made the day uncomfortably cold, Brandon laid on the couch for quite a while because of the cold [hence the name sleepy]. I broke out the heater and warmed them up before we made a move. We caught more bait and fished uplake for a couple hours but only boated 1 fish. We discarded all the baits we had on and made one final move, I located some fish so we put out 10 lines and burnt our bait up. The cold front hurt us today, tomorrow it will be cloudy and maybe the fish will cooperate better. Brandon caught his first Striper today, and the largest of the trip.
