Derek, Rick and Dean

May 9th, 2009: Partly Sunny and Windy, Water Temp 68* and slightly stained.
The weather was suppose to be bad today so I got out early and caught bait, picked the guys up before 6 and was fishing at daylight. We knew it was going to get windy so we wanted to pack a day into 5 or 6 good hours of fishing while it was fairly calm. I set up on the tip of a flat where it dropped off from 20 to 28 feet and immediately started taking hits. We made 4 or 5 circles on it before the fish quit biting then worked our way over to a 20' ridge without getting a strike. The wind was up by 9 and I had a place that was just right to fish and not get completely blown off the lake. We worked it for a couple hours getting strikes about every 15 minutes, then went and caught more bait. Came back and set up on a 25 foot flat, got hit within 5 minutes but it was just too windy to fish it so we went back to where we could get out of the wind. Today we had 20 hook-ups and the guys took home a few fish for the table.
