John Brewer, Vinnie Habib and Kyle Martin

June 1, 2007: Sunny and Pleasant, Water Temp 83*. Caught bait early and picked clients up at High Point at 5:30 am and motored a short distance from the Marina to demonstrate how to put downlines down. We fished 30 to 35 foot flats this morning running Herring about 26 feet deep. At 6 :45 Kyle told John "Its not even 7 o'clock yet and we have already had 50 hits! Well we used up 125 baits and I went to catch more Herring and while I was running I noticed a large school of Stripers on the graph . I found a school of bait and threw twice and caught about 120 Herring and went right back to where I saw the school of Stripers, put baits in their faces and wore them out. The picture of Kyle standing in the back of the boat is shortly after he tangled 4 or 5 lines up reeling in a punk. Anyway, today we had over 150 strikes , catching over 50 fish and clients taking home 16 nice Stripers, all before 10 am. June marks the beginning of our summer season and it is not uncommon for my clients to boat 100 fish a morning.
