Travis, Randy, Bob, Jim and Dan

July 15th, 2009: Sunny and Warm, Water Temperature 84* and Clear.
Some of the guys wanted to go out this morning to watch me catching bait so they met me at the marina at 3:15 and we caught bait. Picked the other guys up at 5 and went searching for Stripers. This morning it was in the 50's and cool for a July morning. I looked for a while never finding any large schools so we set up on smaller pods of fish. After a couple set ups I decided to look until I found what I wanted and I did. I pulled up into a creek and the Lowrance lit up with arches. The guys had practiced on the smaller schools and they were ready. They all jumped up, tried to get the baits down and everything we put in their faces went off. At one time everyone had a fish on the deck trying to get off the hook while other rods were bent over in the rod holders with Stripers. We finally lost that school and found another experiencing the same action and soon ran out of bait. We went and caught some more bait although it was tough. Set up on a small school and used up all the bait in the tank and called it a day. Today I learned what it was like for someone who had taken a half a Viagra, what happens to Bob shortly after he eats Chicken Wings, and a few other tidbits I shouldn't mention in this journal. We all had a good time, hard not to with good friends and the fish biting. The guys kept 15 Stripers to take home.
