Derek, Tom and Jakson

Cloudy and Warm, Water Temperature 88* and clear.
Tom was interested in learning a little more about what I do so I met them at the marina at 4am, caught bait and went out to locate schools. I found a school at 6:15 and showed them how to determine if the fish were catchable and what direction they were traveling. Once they understood that I got out in front of the school, set out our baits and watched the rods bend over. It was quite interesting for awhile, they were busy reeling in fish as I was baiting empty hooks, netting the fish and at the same time teaching them how to use the side scan to keep on the school. I popped this picture of my Lowrance at the tail end of the school prior to moving again to get back into them. We followed the school for about an hour, then the buzzards found us and unfortunately motored through the schools spooking the fish and ruining it for everyone. It didn't matter to us this morning, we caught the stringer before 7am and were releasing fish. It would have been nice if these boaters would keep their distance so Tony and his group of clients could have caught their limits. A storm blew in and we got off the water around 8 and called it a day.
