Paul Henon and Gary Skillihorn

Would you ever use this for Bait?

May 2nd, 2008 : Sunny and Warm, Water Temp 69* and clear. Picked clients up at 5:30 and headed up lake to fish. I caught bait yesterday so we could get an early start. Set up on a main lake flat and pulled 10 boards, a bobber and a couple of down lines. Ran my spread for 3 hours only putting a couple of fish in the boat so I decided to go catch some fresh bait and we did. Came right back to where I fished this morning because I saw so many fish there earlier and put out the same spread. On the way back from catching bait Gary pulled out a Banana and Paul gave him grief for bring it aboard and it being bad luck, reminding him of the 2 very nice fish he lost earlier. Anyway, the banana was off the boat and we were going to give it our best shot. We continued to run the same area the rest of the day, and we nailed them. Gary catching the largest fish of the day after loosing the banana, a 16 1/2 pound Striper. We only had 2 dozen strikes today, catching 8 Stripers and a couple of Cats.
