Elden Wright and Bill

May 22nd, 2009: Sunny and Warm, Water Temperature 73* and Clear.
Picked the guys up at High Point Marina at 5am and went uplake to catch bait. After about an hour of throwing we had 50 and went fishing. My hopes were not very high due to it being the Friday before Memorial Day Weekend, I had already passed 3 Striper boats before getting bait. A good friend Danny called me on the radio and said to forget where I wanted to go, there were already 3 boats on it and 2 more heading for it. I already figured that and was setting up in a different area without a boat in sight. It was a beautiful morning on the lake and it was nice to put out a spread of baits , catch some fish, relax and not be harassed by other boats. The fish were not aggressive this morning, we were all over them but for some reason they were hesitant to eat. Today we had about a dozen hook-ups and Elden and Bill took home some nice Stripers for their lovely wives to eat. I will stay off the water till the weekend warriors go home than try it again.
