Mike, Emily and Matt

Cloudy, Thunderstorms, then partly sunny, Water Temperature 85* and clear.
Caught bait then picked my clients up at high Point at 5. Waited a couple minutes for a storm to pass then went looking for fish. I saw what I wanted so I stopped and we tried to get baits in the water. The fish did not let us get set up without hitting our baits. Within 2 minutes we had 5 Stripers on the deck and my crew was wondering what had just happened. They had been fishing Lake Anna for years even with other guides and had not caught a Striper much less seen so much action so quickly. Problem was after catching the fish we had no baits in the water so the school dissipated. Today we hit about 5 or 6 groups of fish and easily caught our limit. We were able to get off the water before the madness began on the lake. Matt will be grilling Stripers this afternoon with Mikes family coming over to help him eat some of their catch.
I will be off the water for a couple days to celebrate Independence Day and to give the Stripers a break.
