Ken Wilson with guests Jack, Marty and Karen

May 20th, 2009: Sunny and Pleasant, Water Temp 68* and warming.
Got out this morning at 5, picked up my clients, caught bait and snaked my way through the fog to work an area with flats ranging from 8 to 25 feet deep. Before I could get my boards out we started taking hits and within 5 minutes of fishing we put 3 fish in the boat. We worked the flats for awhile and had 10 more fish hook up and I decided to take a brief break to let the crew use the restrooms. Went back out and set up on some deeper flats, saw fish, put downlines in the fish's faces and started hooking up again. We fished that area and hooked up 6 or 8 times boating 3 or 4 fish then I made another move to a similar area. Wasn't there for 5 minutes and we banged them again. Karen caught the biggest fish of the day, an 11 pounder, and everyone went home with a big smile on their faces. The crew took home about 115 pounds of Striper today.

We had a great day on the lake! Although I didn't land many of the the bigger fish we caught, I would like to think I brought home the more flavorful smaller ones! Jim is truly a pro and I look forward to our next trip.

Thanks Jim!
