June 17th, 2008: Water Temp 82* and clear.
Worried about the full moon last night and the cold front that blew through I got on the water before 3 this morning to catch bait. Herring does not want to come to a light with a bright moon and the water temp dropped 6* overnight so I knew I was in for a tough day. I hung 3 lanters and hit 4 dock lights and in two hours I caught 30 baits. Picked the guys up and told them the bad news and went looking for bait with no success. We had caught nice fish yesterday trolling so I rigged up for that and we pulled umbrella rigs and drop lines today . It took the fish 3 hours to school, mostly due to the front, but once they did we caught 16 Stripers. Thanks to the fish Gods for letting catch this many fish in these conditions.
