Bob and Linda Miller with Butch Bageant

June 5, 2007 : Sunny and windy, Water temp 79* and Clear.
Caught bait early and picked clients up at 5:30 and went in search of schools of Stripers. Most bait and fish early in the morning were in 15 to 22 feet of water so I started out on a 25 foot flat running downlines. As the sun rose I gradually moved deeper with the fish. We encountered many schools today, most of which we took fish from. I pulled up on one school where for 20 minutes we could only get 3 to 4 lines in the water before they got jambed and we would put a line in and before we could bait another the first one would go down. We decided to leave this school because they were eating all my bait up. Today we fished 5 or 6 major schools , had in excess of 200 strikes, clients catching over 60 Stripers and 6 or 8 Cats, with clients keeping 16 nice Stripers . I am sure this is a day my clients will never forget.
