Steve, Jeff, Eric and Chris

Sunny and Cold, Water temperature 38* and Clear.
I got out early this morning , caught bait and met the guys at the dock at 7. Water temp at the marina had dropped about 4 degrees so I looked for warmer waters and set out my spread of a dozen boards, free lines, bobber and a couple downlines. We worked humps, points and flats all day today. This morning fishing was fairly slow but steady, we would get bit about every 15 minutes or so. We had a couple spells where we would get 4 or 5 strikes in a 50 yard area but the fishing definitely got better as the water warmed up in the afternoon. Thee guys came prepared to have fun today and that is exactly what we did. Today we had 33 hookups and boated 22 Stripers. Guys are shown holding some of the fish they kept today. We had a couple nicer fish on today but Jeff must have felt sorry for them and let them go. Over all today was a good day considering the conditions.

David, Jonathan, Jim and Carter

Partly Sunny and Cold, Water Temperature 44* and Clear.
Got out early and caught bait then picked the guys up at High Point Marina and went fishing. As I was running I noticed numerous fish between 15 and 25 feet deep. I went past where I saw the fish and set put my spread pulling baits back through the fish. It didn't take long for the the first fish to hook up and Carter landed the first Striper of the day. For the next hour I was behind trying to get baits in the water because as soon as I got a few lines out they would get hit. We boated quite a few fish on our first pass but all of the fish were hitting boards furthest away from the bank. We worked less than a mile stretch of water all morning catching a nice stringer of Stripers. Other than when the wind would blow it was a very nice December day. Jim is pictured with his son Carter holding a nice Bass. We caught 19 fish today and had a great time.

Paul and DP

Cloudy and Cold, Water Temperature 43* and Clear.
Anthony got on the water early and caught bait for the guys. They pulled main lake areas of the lake that were not "iced in" with planner boards and downlines. Anthony had to get off the water early for a Christmas party at his house so they quit fishing shortly after noon. They had already caught a limit and had been releasing fish anyway. Congratulations go out to Paul, he is a new dad as of last Sunday, proud father of Ella Grace. Congratulations not only to the new baby but that his wife would let him go fishing so soon after the baby was born!
