Ann, Brian and Kelly

Cloudy and Warm, Water Temperature 89* and Clear.
Caught bait as early as usual then picked my clients up at 5:30 at High Point. After showing everyone how to deploy the baits I searched for schools of Stripers. I located some over 30 foot flats so we set up downlines at 22 feet deep and started catching Stripers. I called Tony[Guide] on the radio and told him to come on over and join in the fun. He was a little late arriving, after about 15 minutes the action was over. This particular school had broken up so we trolled around the pods of Stripers catching fish out of each pod. We would locate a school of Stripers, put herring in their faces and catch some Stripers, get inundated with other fisherman, leave that area, locate and set up on other schools just to get run over by inconsiderate fisherman. Tony and I would work the schools till the fish would spook. With 2 guides working schools of Stripers other anglers can't help but run over us and spook the schools. If only they knew their motors were not only spooking the fish but breaking up the schools! We finally got wise and left the area completely, located yet another school and worked it till Ann called the ball and said they had enough for one day. We caught about 25 Stripers this morning plus some catfish.
