The calm before the storm

10 pound Striper

5 pound Bass

1 1/2 pound crappie
Anthony called me yesterday around 11 saying he had just got back from Florida and that he wanted to take his boat out for a couple hours fishing and did I want to go. We had gone to Florida last week and I returned early to take care of my house in the snow storm. Anthony wanted to get out on the water and relax before going back to work today to face the storm of issues he may have after not being there for 10 days. Come to find out everything had gone well at work for him and he worried for naught. Well I met him on the water around 12:30. We only had a couple hours to fish because he had to get off the water at 3. We decided to set up in an area where we could pull shallow flats and if the fish were not there simply pull out and hit 20 to 30 foot flats giving us a chance to pattern the fish. It was cloudy yesterday and the fish were basically scattered. We took hits in all depths catching decent fish everywhere. We were using small baits pulling planner boards and downlines. We caught 7 Stripers, a Largemouth and a few Crappie in 2 1/2 hours of fishing. I kept the Crappie for a good dinner last night.
