David Saunders [Equity Concepts] with guests Craig, Colin, Ian and Josh

Sunny and Hot, Water Temperature 90* and Clear.
Caught bait early this morning and picked up my crew at 5:30 at High Point. I instructed them on how to deploy the baits and went looking for schools. We set up on some scattered fish as a drill to learn how to put the baits out, caught a couple fish then I went looking for the real deal. I looked for about 15 minutes, Ian was getting impatient and asked if there were any fish in the lake, but soon I found what I wanted and we set up on it. The fish were shallow this early in the morning so I told them to put the baits out at 9 pulls and before we got all the baits in the action started with Ian hopping on the first rod. When he landed the fish his eyeballs almost popped out of his head, he had waited for this day and there were indeed fish in the lake. For the next 90 minutes we had steady but controllable action. In that time frame we had 30 solid hookups but had a few issues getting all the fish into the boat. David actually had 3 hooks come off the line, he said they had to be monsters. That school moved on and so did we. We stayed in the general area, set up on Stripers maybe 3 more times before David informed me that they were meeting a friend around 11, so I showed the guys how to troll lures then got them back to the marina in time to meet their friend. It was a great morning for everyone and now the boys know not only are there nice Stripers in the lake but how to catch the them.
