A fun Saturday morning on the lake

John, Ally, John and Jeff
Sunny and Pleasant, Water Temperature 85* and Clear
Tony and I caught bait early and picked our clients up at 6 at High Point. I set up over 35 foot flats early and we started catching fish within the first 5 minutes of the morning. We were not on schools but were targeting small pods of Stripers. We caught fish at a rate of about 1 every 5 minutes or so. Before we knew it we were getting low on bait so we went and caught 150 more and headed down lake away from the boat traffic. We looked for quite awhile until I decided to set up in an area that was opposite of what we had been doing. We had looked for fish and not seen large schools so I told the guys lets do something Bass Ackwards. We set our baits out and immediately John hooked up with a hog. The rod was doubled over and everyone was yelling at him to get it out of the holder. after 8 to 10 seconds he still did not have the rod out and the fish was pulling drag and had gone under the boat and was heading uplake. As things happened, John never got the rod out and the fish broke the line off on the bottom of the boat. We continued to work the area and popped a few nice fish there. Fishing was not great today but we all had a lot of fun together. I lost count of how many fish we caught but I think it was around 30. If only John could have got that rod out of the holder!!!!!
