Friday the 13th, 2008: Sunny and Hot, Water Temp 86* and Clear.
Picked clients up this morning at 3:45 to take them out to witness catching bait. Had to make 30 casts this morning with the throw net, bait collection has sucked lately. There are so many smaller Herring in the lake that when you throw on bait you catch over 100 Herring at a time, by the time you pick out the 6 or 8 decent sized baits out of the batch the Herring get so beat up they become very fragile and lazy and only last for a couple hours before dying. I start out with a couple hundred baits and by 9 am you have had 100 hits and the rest are history. We hit numerous schools this morning, by the time you set up on the schools they move so fast you catch only a fish or 2 out of the school, then have to get back on the big motor and locate more. Well we fished aggressively early today with Steve and his daughter "Spanking" the rest of the crew, Calin catching most of the fish. Tried to catch more bait later in the day and threw for a couple of hours with no success.
