Blaine Lampman with guests Rick, Lori and Brian

July 27th, 2009: Sunny and Pleasant, Water Temperature 85* and Clear.
Got out on the water this morning in a Very bad thunderstorm, drove uplake and caught bait. Went back to High Point and picked my crew up at 5:30, the rain had passed and it had turned out to be a pretty morning. I found some fish nearby the marina and we put some baits out and started taking hits on downlines. After catching 5 or 6 fish John Called and said he was on a school so we looked over by him but the school had vaporized. We continued to look for schools and I saw some Stripers busting in the back of a short pocket off the main lake so we set up on them and hooked up to 4 Stripers. We continued to look for fish , set up on smaller pods, catch a few fish, do it again and again until we ran out of bait around 9:30. By now we had gone through about 150 baits so I looked for bait, found some and threw a dozen times on it but the water is so clear I just could not catch any. I looked for bait for over an hour with no success and were not seeing any fish so Blaine decided to call it a day for the fishing, he had to go back and work this afternoon. Lori is pictured with a nice Striper and they kept 10 Stripers to take home to eat. Blaine kept ribbing Rick that if he could have caught the fish that he had on this morning they could have limited out very early this morning. I will not comment on Rick was saying to Blaine. Good thing they brought Lori along, she is responsible for dinner tonight.
