Tyson Messick with friends Kirtis, Ryan and Greg

July 20th, 2009: Cloudy and rainy morning, Water Temperature 83* and Clear.
John and I got out early and caught bait, we picked our clients up at 5:30 at High Point. I hit the water a minute before John and stumbled into a small school, taught the guys how to deploy the lines and put them out. We no sooner got a few baits in the water before we started taking hits. John pulled up and had to explain to his clients what to do, all the while he was looking over at us with everyone hooked up. Once he got his baits out they started reeling in fish also. The school stayed in the area for about 45 minutes, long enough for both boats to catch over 20 fish out of the school. I looked for another school for about 10 minutes and located one, worked it for a while and did it again and again. John's crew and mine finally ran out of baits and we called it quits about 9 this morning. John and I had caught well over 45o baits this morning and had at least 400 hits today. My crew kept 18 Stripers to take back to the lake house that they are renting this week.
