Senior, Eddie and Jeff

July 24th, 2007 : Sunny and pleasant, Water Temp 83* and Clear.
Picked clients up at 5:30 and caught 200 Herring. Set up on a 35' flat but didn't like what we saw so I motored another 500 yards and found the big school. Put out 8 downlines at 28' and they started going off. The school was a large one but the fish were not super aggressive. Instead of all the lines being constantly buried only 2 or 3 were going off at once. I moved around the school with my trolling motor trying to see if some part of the school wanted to eat more than the other but the action was the same, 3 or 4 strikes a minute. After working this school for an hour I went and caught more bait and found a school of Stripers stacked in a channel bend, put lines out and everything went off. We worked this school for 15 minutes then followed it for a while longer. Today we had about 250 hits, clients catching 30 fish and keeping 16 to take home for the freezer.
