    Santee catman I went out Monday morning and tried the shallow bite as well. I barely caught enuough bait to fish with. Only ended up with 3. 5# channel, 12# blue, and a 22# blue. I had a lot of gar bites, though. I fished anywhere from 3' to 10' of water. The water temp showing on my depth finder was 57.5 deg that morning and ended up around the 60 deg mark @ 1:30 when I left. They still aren't quite right yet, but if this warm spell lasts and the rain doesn't flood us out again it won't be long!!!:cool2:
