Rob, Michael and Jack

 The sun coming up this morning

Sunny and Warm, Water Temperature 73* and Clear
We got out early this morning, caught bait, picked the guys up before daylight then went looking for fish. I went to set up pulling a large mid lake flat so we stopped about a hundred yards prior to the flat to get our baits out. We had only put a couple in when I looked at my Lowrance which was full of fish. The downlines started getting nervous, the boards were rocking, then the guys started running for the hooked up rods. We landed a few fish but this school was the only school we saw for the rest of the day. We worked hard catching a couple fish here and there and ended up having a good day and a lot of fun. The bottom picture of my Lowrance shows a small group of Stripers on a ledge we went over. A 5 pound Striper hit a downline, Michael fought the fish to the boat and we landed it. You can see in the blue down scan picture the streak off to the right of the group of fish. The Striper came up out of the group, took the bait and as the boat was pulling away from the group Michael wrestled the fish in which is the "streak". Today fish were hugging the bottom in small groups on ledges in 15 to 25 feet of water.
