Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Benedict

Cloudy and Cool, Water temperature 78* and Clear.
I caught bait this morning then picked my clients up at their dock at 5:30. We went searching for schools of Stripers and after about 15 minutes of looking I found a nice school. We set out downlines on the fish and after before you knew it the deck was littered with fish. We went through about 25 baits on the first set up. I looked for and found a couple more schools experiencing similar results and by 8:30 we had gone through a hundred baits. It started to rain about 9 this morning and by 9:30 everyone was cold and wet so we called it a day and I took them back to their dock. I expected to see Stripers breaking this morning but only a few broke the water, at least where I was fishing. I have been away on my yearly motorcycle trip for the last week and this is the first day back on the water. I expect fishing only to get better for the next month or so.
