Sorry guys. Phone battery was low. Had to turn it off. Striper fishing was slow at the island. I saw a total of 10 or more boat surrounding the island during the early morning hours. Some were live baiting,some were slabbing,and some including me were trolling. We saw lots of bait on wind blown points at the island where all the boats were but the stripers were not there. After a good couple of hours every one left the island and went else where to search for fish. I opt to head for the State Park on wind blown points and shore line. I observed lots of bait continued to be push on to this shore line promising predator fishes. We waited and waited but all we had was scattered white bass lying close to the bottom not actively chasing shads. Finally late evening hours arrived and the white bass started to suspend and actively feeding on school of shads. We caught a mess of them trolling pet spoons diving just below the boat at 10 fow in 25 fow. It was double every time we pass a school. We play with the white bass till the sun went down and call it a day. Total was 5 stripers and a mess of whites.

Very hard today decisions.
We are heading to Somerville now an decided to aborted our trip to lake FPH. Reason our tires blew and our spare tires were not in that great a shape. Also being Sunday there's no tire shop open. We don't want to chance be stranded with no other spare tires. Wll put in a report later for Somerville.

Yep I'm a fish eating fool. I got 6 sisters and brother that will help me eat it. My wife got a bunch of them too. But any way enjoy the report. One little old Bruce ain't gonna deplete all the fish. And you know the rule. No pics it didn't happen.

Fish today bunch up in school every where. All big 15" whites and hybrids right along side of them.
Tossing deep diving crank bait with a three way swivel and teaser pet spoon trailering behind the crank bait absolutley kill the fish today. 10-15 fow.

Do not spot lock on top of a school. They will get spooked and move right away. Best tactic is to throw out a buoy. Anchor away from the school and throw deep diving crank bait with a big teaser pet spoon. The spoon catches 80% of the fish. This rig set up produces doubles hybrids and white bass hook ups. Fun Fun Fun. Whites had been feeding hard lately. Most crapps on the boat when landed. All hybrids are 22" and bigger. All with nice round belly's. Not skinny like last month. Try the slabs but was slow to hook up.
