March 12th, 2008 : Sunny and windy, Water Temp 50* and Clear.
Caught bait early this morning and picked clients up at 7am . Set up on a shallow flat that I had fished yesterday morning with success and pulled 10 planner boards and a bobber over it rigged with Herring. After working the flat for 45 minutes I decided to make a move because the fish just were not aggressive, they only hit the baits in the tail and we only put 1 keeper in the boat. [Yesterday morning in an hour pull we had 15 hits with multiple hook-ups.] We set up on and worked main lake points where fish were but the fish just did not want to eat. We hit about 15 points and in between with limited success and by now the wind was howling. I made another move to the back third of a major creek and put our spread out. The Stripers did the same thing until I hit a certain secondary point and every pass we made on it we would get hits and catch fish. Today we had 19 strikes boating 9 Stripers. We wouldn't have had that success if it were not for Lenny's alertness and Brians help with the rods.
