April 13th, 2008 : Cloudy and cool, Water Temp 58* and Clear.
Got out early this morning and caught bait, picked clients up at their dock at 6:30 am. Took a short ride and put out my spread working a 300 yard flat. We no sooner got all 13 lines out and fish started boiling all over the area and our baits started getting clobbered. We had 5 strikes before we ever got the first fish in the boat , the fish hooking up, pulling drag, and just getting off. There was surface action all around us, we threw lures at the fish but with no success. We pulled our baits through the fish and the fish just seemed lethargic this morning feeding. We worked the area for a couple hours and the board bite subsided. We converted to more downlines and moved deeper and resumed catching fish. I believe alot of the action this morning on the surface were male Stripers rolling the females spawning. We were off the water by 11am this morning, getting 45 vicious strikes and clients taking home 11 Stripers for the dinner table. The crew partied pretty hard last night, there were a couple guys on board trying to find their sea legs this morning and a couple more guys stayed back at the house this morning, hugging toilets.
