Jim, Lela and Tyler

Sunny and Hot, Water temperature 92* and Clear.
Met my clients at High Point this morning after catching bait. They were early so I had time to discuss how to deploy the baits well in advance of putting them on fish. I located some fish nearby the marina but hesitated to set up on them with so many fisherman passing by the area so I continued to look elsewhere. Charlie called me and said he had seen some scattered fish and by now we were seeing a few fish breaking on the surface. We went up nearby where Charlie had seen some fish and put our lines out because there were no other boats in the area. Within a couple minutes Tyler hooked up then Lela hooked up with the fish she is holding in the picture. A third rod bent over and Jim hopped on it. I netted all three Stripers and we were off to a good start, or so I thought. A boat had busted us and was determined to get in front of us and before we knew it there were 9 or 10 boats in the immediate area. It didn't take long for the fish to figure out what was going on so I decided to make a move. We set up on a few areas where we had it to ourselves and burnt up 200 Herring by 10am giving us time to get off the water before it got too hot and before the boat traffic got too bad. I think we made a fisherwoman out of Lela today, she wrestled in all of the larger fish and did well doing so. Jim took home 14 Stripers for dinners this weekend.
