Jason, Megan, Dave and Jeremy

July 3rd, 2009: Partly Sunny and Pleasant, Water Temp 83* and Clear.
Caught bait early and went to pick up my clients at the marina. We got a late start this morning, there was a mix up on where to meet so we started about an hour late. I looked for schools but only found pods of Stripers. We set up on a half dozen groups but by 9:30 only had 1 keeper. Hit a creek that was loaded with fish but only got punked, we left them for larger fish. By now the holiday traffic was rocking the lake and hopes were not very high. After burning 3/4 of a tank of gas I saw what I wanted and set up on it. 8 out of 10 rods went off soon after we set up but we were busted and another pontoon set up on top of us. Within 5 minutes there were a half dozen fisherman on us and an idiot pulling a tube in circles around us fisherman. We had enough of that and picked up and moved. We hit a few more areas, only catching a fish or two at each location. Jason ruled the action today, he said he would gladly just take fish off the hook for everyone but when he was helping his wife with a rod and the rod next to her went down he about knocked her down to reel the fish in. Jeremy caught the big fish of the day which was also the last fish of the day. Today they kept 15 Stripers to take home for the holiday. Traffic was horrible on the water, hope no one gets killed out there this weekend.
