June 12, 2006 : Rain and cold, Water temp 76* and falling
Got on the water at 3 to catch bait, pooring down rain, set out lanterns to attract herring and had poor luck catching bait. Had 50 baits by daylight and picked up clients at the dock. Didn't have much confidence in the day with the cold front moving thru but I gave it my best shot. I looked for schools in 30 ' flats with no luck and after 1 hour moved to 25' flats and found them. After 30 minutes we went thru our baits and spent the next 2 hours looking for additional bait. We burnt $90 of gas today looking for fish and bait but it paid off with great results. When it was all said and done, we caught a 24" Walleye, 3 Bass pushing 7 pounds, 25 Stripers and a dozen Cats.

Thanks for a wonderful day fishing we all had a wonderful time. Its amazing how much one can learn when fishing with someone who actually knows what they are doing.I am sure I will be a better fisherman from what learned. The info is invaluable for a recreational fisherman. Thanks again....

I agree with you Jeff. I have gone out with Jim several times and it is amazing how much he knows about the stripers and how much he teaches you when you are out with him. He catches fish under almost any conditions. If you want to learn how to fish for stripers on this lake, there is no better way to learn than to go out with Jim.
