Bob, Jack, Carl, Ken and Richard

Sunny and Windy, Water Temperature 53* and Clear,
We got started at 7 this morning and headed up lake to catch bait. On my first set up the first fish we caught was a catfish. I told the guys right then that was a bad sign. We fished the area for about an hour just to catch 1 small Striper. I knew the bite was off so I caught some more bait and hit another area. We got a few hits and maybe boated a fish or two but it was the same deal down there also, the fish were simply not feeding. I caught some more bait and hit another area and just couldn't buy a fish. I kept assuring the guys that yesterday it was slow and about 2 the fish went crazy but it was difficult to set there and stare at planner boards. When the moon is bright at night a lot of the time the fish feed so heavily at night they don't feed again for about 8 hours. Next thing we knew we took a hit, boated the fish and did it again and again for the next 2 hours. It was a long day with action sporadic action until we hit the feeding period. The guys hung in there and our patience paid off with a nice stringer of Stripers.
