Cloudy And Warm, Water Temperature 85* and Clear.
Tony and I both had trips this morning so we got out on the water early and topped our tanks off with 125 baits each. We picked our clients up at High Point at 5:30 and hit the water looking for Stripers. I located a school, set up on them and took 20 hits in about 10 minutes but all the hits were short. I then went one way and Tony took off the other way to continue looking. I set up on a school and caught a dozen Stripers within a 30 minute span, all 19 1/2 inches. Tony was getting banged also but was getting punked as well. I had about 50 baits left in the tank and found a huge school of Stripers. We set up on them and within 15 minutes used up all of our bait. By now Tony was also out of bait and it was still before 7am. We both went to catch bait, I caught 80 in about an hour of throwing but Tony was had more difficulty locating the bait. I took what I had, found another huge school and burnt the baits up in less than 30 minutes. I tried to get Tony to join in but he wanted to top his tank off with bait before fishing. I made one more move and filled our livewell with our limits. Tony ended up having to catch bait several times today which paid off for his clients with a wonderful catch of Stripers. Everyone had fun today and left with smiles on their faces.
