Deno, Kerri and Al

Sunny and Warm, Water Temperature 83* and clear.
I caught bait early this morning then picked my crew up at their dock at 5:30. We looked for some fish for a little while then we set up on a couple just to familiarized with putting the baits out properly. After I felt confident they understood how to do it we went looking for schools. I found what I wanted to see so we set up on a small school. We started taking hits with the first bait that we got down. Birthday boy Deno popped the first couple of Stripers then his daughter Kerri got in the action. The action slowed up after about 15 minutes of constant action. We reeled our lines in and relocated the school. We had no mercy on them this time as everyone did an excellent job putting the baits out properly and reeling in fish. A couple of these fish had their way with Kerri today as they pulled her around the boat. This was Al's first time Striper fishing and he handled himself like a pro. Before we knew it we had caught our limit. They took home 16 Stripers and a Walleye. Deno has been out with me numerous times and loves the downline bite. His daughter Kerri and Al gave him this trip for his Birthday present. Probably the best present he could ever get, catching Stripers on his daughter.
