John and Kevin

Cloudy and Pleasant, Water Temperature 85* and clear.
I got out early as usual, caught bait and picked the guys up at High Point at 5. We looked for a while then a friend Charlie called me on the radio and said if I wasn't on anything he thought we could catch some fish where he was so we went and checked it out. When I got up to him he had 4 fish hooked up, so I guess he was right. We stopped about 100 yards out , put our baits in and started working toward him. We hooked up on 2 Stripers then an inconsiderate boater in a Bass Tracker came motoring by us spooking the school. He and his friend in another boat had seen me go by them so I guess they thought they would come up and ruin our fishing by running over the fish. Within a minute my screen was blank so we got our baits in and looked for other fish away from other boats. I found a large school, called Charlie and set up on them. We worked the school for about an hour catching plenty of fish. Boat traffic was already getting bad so we caught our limits and got off the water before we got swamped. John's daughter gave him the trip today as a present. Other than just about getting run over it was a fun morning.
