A Rainy Day

 Poppy, Dan, Joe, Jessica and Jason

Jessie's Big Striper of the morning

Cloudy and Rain, Water temperature 82* and Clear
I caught 200 baits early this morning then picked my clients up at High Point. I looked for a short time for a school but with the rain and clouds I did not expect to see much. Instead I simply set up in an area where I thought we would be able to catch fish. Before I could get many lines out Dan hooked up with our first and largest fish of the morning. Hopes were high but I was still concerned about the weather and how it would affect fishing today. We worked a little further and got punked then starting catching Cats, not good. I moved around taking hits everywhere but it did not seem the decent fish wanted to feed. We used up our baits then went and caught 75 more and hit different areas. I was hoping for a great stringer today but we had to settle for a dozen keepers, some of them nice fish. I was talking on the phone to one of my other guides on the way home being pretty bummed out about our catch and he cheered me up by saying "Your bad days are better than 99% of everyone else s good days". Still wish today was better.
