May 14th, 2009: Cloudy and Windy, Water Temperature 68* and Clear.
Got out real early this morning to catch bait because I knew the wind was going to howl and I wanted to give my clients a good chance to catch fish before the front hit. Picked the guys up at 6 at their dock and had baits in the water within 5 minutes. Put out a spread of boards and downlines and it didn't take long before we had fish on. We popped one fish and made a turn and came back over the area and 3 rods went off. I knew where the zone was now, and we proceeded to spank the Stripers. The fish were staged on a ledge between a shallow flat and a deeper flat, the only Stripers that were feeding were right on the ledge although we could see others on either flat. We worked the ledges till the wind blew us off the lake around 11am then we headed for the dock. We all had a lot of fun this morning and when I left the marina it looked like the guys had their hands full cleaning all the Stripers. This morning we had 27 fish on, the guys kept 19 for 150 pounds. [I couldn't have got through the morning without Chris Gilbert's help..........NOT]
