Jim and Brian Garner

Sunny and Pleasant, Water Temperature 82* and Clear.
I picked Jim and Brian up at their dock this morning, went and caught bait then looked for Stripers. Although they had been out with me numerous times I wanted to start off slowly on pods of fish versus larger schools which 2 anglers may not be able to handle very well. We set up nearby some breaking fish first but after catching 8 fish in 5 minutes we decided to make a move. Our second set up worked out great, we would hook up about once every 3 or 4 minutes giving them a chance to enjoy the catch and time to rebait. It was also nice fishing during the week again without so much boat traffic to deal with. We went through 150 baits on 5 or 6 set ups , caught more bait and hit them again and again. Seemed everywhere we fished we caught nice fish. Jim kept a dozen Stripers to keep and we released all the other fish in good shape to fight again another day. Jim is pictured holding the nicest fish of the day.
