We started fishing before daylight looking for the early bite; the water was very calm. We found some fish on points with a chrome red fin in about 4 feet of water. When the sun was up we started marking fish on the Hummingbird at about 25 feet. We started pulling bait with planer boards and caught spots. The striper bite was slow until we added a couple of split shots to our bait lines then we had a difficult time keeping bait on the lines. We were seeing the fish on the Hummingbird that we were catching. We also caught a big gar and let him go at the boat. All in all it was a great week I think the next week will be even better.
