Mike, Bob, Tim, Vince and Jack

Partly Cloudy and Pleasant, Water temperature 85* and Clear.
Picked the guys up after catching bait and headed uplake to catch some more. Threw for about 45 more minutes and had 2 tanks of nice bait. I pulled out of the cove where I was catching bait and tripped over a school of Stripers. I wasn't ready for this because I had not had time to get my rods set out on the boat nor had I told the guys how to deploy the downlines. Needless to say it was chaotic for about 10 minutes trying to get baits out. The schools today were not hard to find but they sure did move fast. No sooner would we setup on a school before they would move. We would get the baits in and find the school 5 to 6 hundreds yards away and repeat the drill time and time again. We ran out of bait so we went and caught some more and set up on a small school and worked it for 30 minutes before they moved on. Jack caught the big fish for the day. Today we caught about 20 fish, the guys kept 11 and released the others.
