Martin, Philip and Barry

May 18th, 2009: Sunny, Cold and Windy, Water Temperature fell to 68*.
After yesterdays cold and rain and last nights cold and wind the water temp fell to 67* this morning .I got out early and caught bait then picked up my clients at 6am. The wind was already howling so I headed for the only place I knew that I could fish to stay out of the wind but when I rounded the turn there were already 2 boats there so I set up in the wind. We started taking hits early and saw plenty of fish but they were very lethargic and had to hit them in the head to eat. We hit a couple other places taking hits and catching a few fish but still the Stripers would not feed well. Today we worked 5 different areas to have 14 hook-ups and boated 8 fish. We saw hundreds of fish on the depth finder and tried our best but the front and the wind had too much affect on us today.
